Landfill Sorting Game: This is a hands-on learning lesson for students. The presentation starts with a discussion about Trash and where it goes - then moves on to Reducing, Reusing and Recycling to help save space in the landfill.
The activity divides the students into 4 groups and each group has a bag of "garbage" (multi-colored bottle caps) and a "landfill" (plastic coffee container) and the students who act as the "garbage trucks" pass the "garbage" to each other until it reaches the "Landfill". But what happens when the Landfill overflows? The students will put into action what they learned during the presentation and we will have a discussion!
