Research the different types of recycling there are. Put this information on your slides, including the symbols and bins that are used.
Pick a recyclable item, on your slide draw the process of how this item gets recycled. Starting from when it is first manufactured.
Within your household, create a paper waste bin and a plastic waste bin. Put your newly designed logos on these bins. Encourage your family to use the recycling bins. At the end of one week, record in a table the items put in the recycling bins. Draw up your table into a slide on your presentation. Upload photos of your bins to your slide as well.
Create 3 slides, on each slide design a new recycling logo. Put lots of images of what can be recycled into that bin.
Now that you know how to recycle, write 1-2 slides about why we MUST recycle to sustain our environment.
Prepare a talk that goes with your slide presentation that you will be presenting to your class in week 10. Your presentation must go for 1 to 3 minutes.
