Look into Waste.
Undy, Harry, Ed.
This booklet is designed to help British teachers introduce concepts of waste to secondary school students. The document focuses on various types of waste and pollution--air, land, water, and industrial--and suggests activities to help students understand and combat waste of natural and human resources. It is presented in 11 chapters. Six chapters deal with waste of specific resources, including water, land, forests, oil, metals, and glass. Two chapters provide general background information on waste and pollution in modern society and offer projections regarding the quality of life of future generations. One chapter examines pollution resulting from improper waste disposal. Another chapter discusses how technology can be used to develop natural power and energy. The final chapter lists resources used in preparing the publication. Each chapter includes a list of learning activities. Students are involved in surveying packaging practices of local supermarkets, visiting waste disposal works, interviewing community members regarding use of aerosol products, visiting reference libraries, analyzing sources of power, and recycling broken glass and aluminum cans.
