What Can We Do with All This Stuff?

Grades K - 5

In this lesson, students consider the idea of “zero waste” and their part in making this a reality. Students go on a waste hunt to survey and document items that are thrown away. Then, using the Habits of a Systems Thinker as a guide, students grapple with finding a use for an item currently discarded as “waste.”
