Taking a Step Back in Time: A Walking Time Line Of Waste History

Posted on

On a sunny afternoon, students from Ms. Wilson’s class took a step back time, in the school yard at Lady Grey Elementary.  The students travelled from the time of hunter gatherers up until modern times predicting how much waste was created during each time period.  To accomplish this, signs were made out of reused materials to replace a slide show that students would have viewed in their classroom.  Students quickly learned that more and more waste was made the closer they travelled to the end of the time line.
