Sixth Grade: Environment

Recycling

We don’t have a sample project for sixth grade students yet, but would love one if you’ve worked it out. Discussion with the community waste management director and school maintenance staff would be the starting point to assess current practices for comparison with models from other communities.

Environment is the most complex topic, embracing a wide variety of explorations in the search for best sustainable solutions. Building a base of education and action can create a path for youth to lead the way forward in our communities. As they connect with their peers nationwide they can combine outcomes into a national picture of our progress.
