Do-It-Yourself Guide to: A Solid Waste Seminar. Construction Plans and Use Guidelines.
Quarry Hill Nature Center, Rochester, Minn.; Minnesota Regional Environmental Education Council, Minneapolis.
Ten learning stations dealing with solid waste comprise the seminar described in this booklet. At each station, students observe a display and then answer questions listed on their data sheets. Although the seminar was intended for junior high school students, it has been used successfully with upper elementary and adult participants. Among the topics studied are composting, recycling of rubber and metal products, methods of waste disposal, and the "throw-away" mentality. The guide includes directions for building each station display, a materials list, estimated cost, and a diagram or photograph of the completed exhibit. Also provided are a solid waste quiz, sample student data sheet, background information for teachers, and questions for class discussion. (WB)
