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 lesson when studying pollution or human impact on the environment.
