Recycling Resources. [Student Handbook, Sound Filmstrips, 12-Inch Record, Pollution Simulation Game, Teacher's Manual]
Hatch, C. Richard
A 15- to 20-hour course on materials recycling, teaching junior high school students about environmental problems and solutions, is developed in this set of materials. It attempts to stimulate them to participate in community efforts aimed at improving the environment. Items in the kit include: (1) teacher's manual, with lesson plans enumerating objectives, concepts, and skills the lesson is to teach, together with subject information and teaching procedures; (2) student handbook, defining the nature of pollution (particularly solid waste pollution) and encouraging the student to investigate pollution sources in his own environment, plan strategies for improving the situation, and involve others in projects; (3) two sound, color filmstrips, one dealing with interdependence through pesticides and environmental consequences, the other showing that pollution and the depletion of our limited resources are logical results of our present way of life; (4) 12-inch record for soundtracks of the filmstrips; and (5) a pollution simulation game with students playing the roles of citizens of Ecopolis. They make decisions about the quantity of goods made, waste disposal, economic and social costs of pollution, and voting opportunities. There are enough materials in the kit for four groups of students (five to nine students per group) to play the game simultaneously. (BL)
