SHIP (Supporting Home Instruction Program) Packet #2-Litter, Food Waste and Packaging

NRRA's SHIP Lessons have left the dock for a second voyage. On this voyage, NRRA explores the differences between human-made and natural litter by taking a litter walk (K-3) when we pull into our first island port. After lunch, students measure and categorize their lunch waste and reveal all the things being thrown away (4-6).  On the return voyage, students discuss how some types of packaging are better for the environment than others and analyze their waste producing habits in order to begin changing them (9-12 ).

Heather discusses renewable and non-renewable packaging (K-3).
