This week marks the beginning of the third session of ALO. The third grade students will explore what it means to reduce, reuse, recycle and compost (3RCs). Then, the class will research what is currently happening in the school cafeteria with regards to the 3RCs. The end goal is to create a presentation for primary students that informs them about how to follow the 3RCs in the school cafeteria.
We will investigate the following questions:
How are students disposing of their trash at school?
How can we improve the current trash situation in the school cafeteria?
Why is it important to recycle and compost appropriate trash?
The students' assignment this week is to keep a record of their trash during the school day on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. They are writing down what they throw in the garbage, compost, and recycle. We will share our findings in class on Thursday.
