Plastics by the Numbers

Students investigate plastic resins and their uses. In this plastics lesson plan, students describe major plastic resins and what they are used for, they compare and contrast the properties of plastic resins and they list products that different resins become when recycled. Students conclude their investigation by determining how to separate mixtures of two types of plastics through a recycling program.
