Learning-By-Doing Leaflets in issue 95

In this set of Learning-By-Doing Leaflets, students learn about waste in their community, particularly municipal solid and hazardous waste. The emphasis in the leaflets is finding solutions to the waste crisis: students are encouraged to consider ways to reduce waste; they discover safer alternatives to hazardous materials, thereby reducing hazardous wastes; they investigate decomposition of waste and how this process can be speeded up; and they make useful products from waste materials. Issues relating to the establishment of recycling businesses are explored, too.

PLEASE NOTE: The Learning-By-Doing leaflets in this pack are intended for secondary school students under the direct supervision of adults. OUTREACH cannot be held responsible for any injuries or accidents that may result from conducting the activities without proper supervision, from not specifically following directions or from ignoring cautions included in the text. Teachers and other adult supervisors should read instructions carefully before commencing activities.
