From snack packages to worn-out tires and nuclear waste, people keep generating trash! Students do their share to help stop waste with the three R’s: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
Did you know that people in the United States throw away an average of 3.5 lbs (1.59 kg) of trash every day? Where does it all go? What happens to nuclear waste from energy plants? How about all the tires that are removed from the world’s cars each year? Open a class discussion focused on trash and its disposal. Document student contributions to the discussion on a classroom white board using Crayola Dry Erase markers.
How to help solve this problem? People can follow the three R's: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. What do students think can be done to reduce waste? Organize students into small groups. With Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils on white paper, ask students to list items they believe families, and classmates can reuse or recycle, such as glass, paper, or plastic. Challenge students to investigate where the landfills and recycling plants are in your community. If possible, students may organize an interview with professionals that work landfills.
What part of this issue captures your imagination? If it’s reuse, maybe one solution is a toy or CD/DVD swap? What about walking to the library more, or reusing your own fabric grocery bags? How can you convince others to follow the three R’s? Use Crayola Washable Markers and white paper to get a recycling point across with a dramatic sign or poster.
Now it’s time to stop waste! Find prominent places in your community to display your posters. Generate a commitment to a cleaner community!
