Whose Garbage is It?

Two news articles are read by class members regarding the excess of garbage in Toronto, Canada. As small groups, they take sides about how to handle the trash, conduct internet research, and then select a representative to act on their behalf in a classroom debate. The lesson plan is brief, but contains poignant questions for learners to consider. Use this activity when studying pollution or human impact on the environment.

I rely heavily on Lesson Planet for finding the resources I use to teach my two daughters at home. Although I am not qualified to teach, I am confident they are both progressing and enjoying the lessons. Being a mother and a teacher at the same time is the best job I have had. Thank you Lesson Planet!!
