SHIP (Supporting Home Instruction Program) Packet #3-Packaging & Nonrenewable Resources
NRRA's third SHIP voyage continues to explore packaging as we head toward Sweden to learn how to turn garbage into energy (4-6). The fun activities scheduled for this journey include making ice cream in a bag (7-8), and bowling on deck using plastic bottles as the bowling pins (K-3)! The lessons learned on this voyage reveal that natural resources are limited and investigate how long our natural resources will last. Students will compare estimated life expectancies of some nonrenewable natural resources (9-12). When the voyage ends, students will understand the role recycling and careful use play in meeting the demand for the extending availability of these resources.
