The More You Know: Designing Creative Solutions for Waste Reduction and Recycling 2 to 6
(5.0 stars, 1 ratings)
This lesson outlines the conclusion of a larger unit plan based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Since these goals highlight global challenges that require innovative thinking and collaboration in order to develop possible solutions, the Design Process was also used to guide students throughout all aspects of the unit. Introductory lessons focused on the first two steps of this process: identify the problem and research possible solutions. Third grade is specifically working on Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production, so they began by making connections between this goal and their own lives. After identifying numerous problems related to Goal 12 within Montgomery Township, they ultimately agreed to concentrate their efforts on the waste and recycling management at MMR. Students then conducted an assessment of MMR’s waste stream in order to identify how much waste was being produced every day and how much of that waste could be recycled. Using the data collected, they moved on to the plan and create phase of the Design Process during which they developed proposals for a new system to manage the waste and recycling in the school cafeteria and within each classroom. As a whole class, we selected the best proposal to move further along in the Design Process. At this point, students are preparing to test & improve the decided upon plan before they conclude the unit using the school’s broadcast studio equipment to produce a Public Service Announcement (PSA) that will be aired for the entire student body. The PSA will allow students to communicate the results of their efforts, spread awareness about an important issue, and inform the school community on how we can work together show respect for the environment.
