The Museum of Solid Waste and Energy.
National Energy Education Development Project, Reston, VA.
This activity geared for grades 5-9 involves students in creating museum stations on eight solid waste and energy topics. While working in groups, students present their station topic to other students who are conducting a "museum tour." In doing so participants are encouraged to enhance their reading, writing, public speaking, and artistic skills in a cooperative learning activity. Station topics include solid waste, source reduction, recycling, waste-to-energy, and landfilling. A teaching guide contains information on teacher preparation and 5 days of lesson plans. Students complete a multiple choice energy survey at the end of the lessons (test included). Background information and step-by-step directions for setting up each of the stations is included. (LZ)
