Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kids become “rubbish warriors” in Garbage: Investigate What Happens When You Throw It Out. Encouraged to think about the choices they make that generate garbage in the first place, readers learn ways to reduce, reuse, recycle—and rethink their actions. Along the way, kids explore the science of garbology, discover fascinating information archaeologists learn by excavating middens, and use projects to investigate the world of trash. Activities include whipping up a delicious edible landfill, brewing natural dyes for a T-shirt, and comparing the effects of commercial and homemade cleaners.

Kids will learn that the battle against the worlds overwhelming waste problem begins with them. Furthermore, Garbage meets common core state standards in language arts for reading informational text and literary nonfiction and is aligned with Next Generation Science Standards. Guided Reading Levels and Lexile measurements indicate grade level and text complexity.

Synopsis:

Teaching children that the battle against the worlds overwhelming waste problem begins with them, this plethora of projects investigates the science of “garbology.” The guide highlights the choices people make in creating garbage in the first place, suggesting ways kids can reduce, reuse, and recycle as well as rethink their actions for the future. Along the way, hands-on activities encourage children to make even more discoveries. Kitchen lovers can whip up a delicious edible landfill, brew natural dyes for a T-shirt, and grow a windowsill garden to make herbal shampoo. Learning the ins and outs of biodegradation, kids can snag air pollution in a can or even compare the effects of commercial and homemade cleaners. From reusing jeans and plastic milk jugs to making use of the odds and ends in the junk drawer, this challenging collection of activities ensures each kid can become a “rubbish warrior.”
