Assign this journal to enable teachers to meet NETS-T 2008 standard 1b. Recycling in most communities is now mandatory. Teachers engage students in exploring this real-world issue that solves an authentic problem of waste management. This lesson requires that the teacher facilitate the development of a school recycling center with these goals: reduce waste, save money, and help keep valuable natural resources from landfills. To educate staff and younger students on the value of improving their community and the environment, students will conduct a waste survey and then create slide presentations that include research, digital photos, and a summary of the school recycling plan.
