Design a Recycling Game! Grades 3-5.
Rushton, Erik; Ryan, Emily; Swift, Charles
Earth is running out of space in landfills and non-renewable resources are being depleted. In this activity, students address the question, "How can we reuse some of our garbage so that we begin to throw away less?" Students brainstorm ideas for an effective board game format and design a game in which players try to come up with alternative uses for used products. This activity requires an 80-minute time period for completion. (Author/SOE)
