Recycling Study Guide [and] The Fourth "R": An Action Booklet for Recycling in the Classroom and School [and] Nature's Recyclers: Activity Guide [and] K-3 Supplement to the Recycling Study Guide.
Hallowell, Anne, Ed.; And Others
Educators and educational institutions are frequently called upon to address issues when behavioral changes are needed. Solid waste is no exception. These four study guides contain activities and resources intended to help instructors and students understand what solid waste is, where it comes from, why it's a problem, and what can be done about it. The "Recycling Study Guide" includes an overview of solid waste and recycling for grades 4-12, a glossary, 20 suggested activities (with sections on goals, subjects, grades, materials, and procedure), and a list of resource publications, audio-visual materials, and organizations. A K-3 supplement to the "Recycling Study Guide" includes activities, worksheets, and take-home materials for younger students. It does not repeat the background information, glossary, and resource listing found in the original guide. "Nature's Recyclers" is an activity guide (19 activities) for ages 6 to adult, intended to help teach about natural recycling, cycles in nature, and the important role people must play in recycling our natural resources. The "Fourth "R"" is a booklet of ideas designed to help classrooms and schools practice recycling, reducing, and reusing to reinforce positive behaviors for dealing with wastes. (LZ)
