|The Business of Recycling Lesson|
|Post Date:||September 11, 2019|
We Learn, We Save, We Win (We3) Education Initiative is a project that links environmental activities and resources from state agencies and businesses to the classroom. The Initiative offers examples of hands-on, project-based lessons for Minnesota classrooms. These lessons will help teachers and students use their classroom and local environment as a "laboratory for systems thinking." Through applying the grade-appropriate concepts and skills across disciplines (with a special focus on science), students will look to their own classroom and local environment in terms of how it impacts, and is impacted by, natural and social systems.
In this activity, students will discuss the information contained in the teacher's background section of the activity and examine graphs which show the history of paper consumption and the amount of paper recycled. They will discuss the effect on the business of paper recycling of various real-life "what if" questions.
