What a Waste!
Dransfield, Robert; Young, Robert
This activity packet produced by the Shell Oil Company, United Kingdom, addresses the environmental issue of waste. The packet is comprised of three booklets: Notes for Teachers; Student Activities; and a student story book, Trouble at Deetown. The teacher section provides teaching suggestions corresponding to the student sections and a glossary of terms. The student activity section describes 27 learning activities divided into categories: (1) what is waste; (2) waste in school; (3) waste in the home; (4) waste in industry; and (5) waste and the environment. The cross-curricular activities are designed to encourage students to develop their personal definition of 'waste' utilizing a wide range of skills and to support the development of economic awareness. The student story book introduces litter awareness: havoc is created when a small town road-sweeper misses a few days of work due to illness. Suggestions found in the teachers notes are correlated to the 27 student activities, and a chart is provided to assist in cross-curricular planning. (MCO)
