Iluminations: Classroom Paper

Students participate in an activity in which they investigate data in connection with recyclable materials and develop plans to help the environment.

This activity requires students to keep track of their own paper use for a week then interpret their results with partners. After studying information on paper use, students will be ready to discuss ideas and implement plans for saving paper in the classroom.
