Organic and Inorganic Recycling

Students examine their role in polluting the environment and discuss the importance of recycling. In groups, they place earthworms into compost piles to observe why they are considered natural recyclers. They also practice sorting a pile of materials into recycleable and non-recyclable objects. To end the lesson, they discover how paper and plastic are recycled.
