Lunchroom Waste Audit

Purpose: We all generate solid waste, but seldom visualize the magnitude of it.

Subjects: Science, Math, Social Studies & Health

Objective: Students will complete a research project to measure the amount of the garbage collected in one day and classify the contents of it.

Materials: A “form” for each group to record findings; a scale to measure pounds; rubber gloves; large sheet of plastic per group; garbage - either from lunchroom or entire school.
