It’s 2020, let’s adapt! This year in bringing many new ways of learning, even in how Beyond Recycling looks at classroom waste. At Gordon Terrace, Mrs. Doll’s class started their Beyond Recycling program with an outside lesson in the snow. It was chilly, but the students were very engaged as Ms Kim stepped in for the Garbologist (who wasn’t allowed at the school) and then as they looked at the history of waste.
The class learned that they, like most of today’s people, are producing more waste than ever before, and in different forms – often ones much harder to dispose of. Fortunately, Ms. Dolls’ class already has a good understanding of what is true garbage, vs recycling, food waste and compost.
