Creating a Mini-Landfill

Students create a min-landfill from lunchbox waste to discover what happens when they throw away packaging and scraps. Using a clear plastic bin, they throw away their trash and layer it with scoops of soil. Students observe what types of rubbish are biodegradable and which types do not rot.

Lesson Planet was a great help to me during my student teaching. The site allowed me to find the lessons and support materials necessary for me to create lesson plans.
