Everybody creates garbage, but do we need to do so? How does creating garbage impact us at home, at school or at play? This guide will help you explore with your students the integrated waste management hierarchy of reduce, reuse, recycle and rot (compost), which we call the 4Rs.
This guide was developed for educators teaching fourth and fifth grades and was designed to be engaging and academically challenging for students. The curriculum is hands-on and cooperative, which will motivate your students and encourage academic achievement.
