Waste in Our World is tailored to meet science curriculum connections for the following grades:
Grade 3: Testing Materials and Designs, Building with a Variety of Materials
Grade 4: Waste and our World
- Activities are designed to fully engage participants in an experiential, hands-on manner. The program is inquiry based, as students investigate a practical environmental issue and develop possible solutions themselves.
- By enhancing their awareness of issues surrounding waste disposal, students will have the opportunity to identify how they can make a difference by improving their own practices related to reducing, reusing, recycling and composting.
The program helps relate the science curriculum to local issues students can relate to and addresses many other learner expectations and skills.
The program serves as a great way to introduce the topic to students and capture their interest, or as a wrap-up activity to reinforce student’s knowledge.
