All "Trashed" Out: An Activity Guide to Solid Waste Management for Grades K-6.
Illinois Univ., Springfield. Center for Solid Waste Management and Research, Springfield.
This activity guide, specifically designed for Illinois classrooms but adaptable for other states, seeks to encourage primary students to make their own personal statement and responses to the environment through increased awareness of reducing, reusing, recycling, and composting of solid waste materials. The activities incorporate environmental topics related to solid waste management in an integrated approach for math, science, and social studies. For each lesson plan the time needed, objectives, corresponding state goals, background information, materials, preparation, procedure, extension activities, and evaluation techniques are specified. Sources used to develop the activities are listed at the end of each activity. An annotated list of supplemental resources and a glossary of terms that can be used as vocabulary words are included in back of the book. (Author/MCO)
