Session #1: Follow the Garbage Truck to the Landfill
12 noon – 12:45 pm
The Center for Hard to Recycle Materials (CHaRM) will help students determine what happens to household trash after it’s picked up by the garbage truck. Students will imagine what would happen if we ran out of space in the landfills. Students will learn about environmental consequences of not recycling.
Session #2: What Happens to My Trash?
1:00 pm – 1:45 pm
Science ATL will lead an engaging activity exploring what happens to the waste we leave at the curb each week, how long it takes household items to degrade, and what we can do to reduce our contribution to landfills.
Session #3: Why Is Water Conservation So Important?
2:00 pm – 2:45 pm
Fulton County Public Works Educators will facilitate an activity emphasizing the importance of water conservation in a world impacted by climate change. After a rain barrel demonstration, students will assemble a planter pot using recycled materials and plant their very own vegetable garden using reuse water!
