a KAB Environmental Curriculum Supplement and Activities
It’s crucial that our future leaders understand waste issues and how waste can be managed. While there will always be garbage, it must be dealt with safely — after recycling, composting, and source reduction have done their part.
Keep America Beautiful’s educational resources for teachers and their students provide a balanced perspective of waste and the options for its management in clear and user-friendly formats.
The classroom curriculum supplement Waste in Place, for grades K-6, builds critical thinking, processing, and problem-solving skills through imaginative, hands-on lessons. Lessons can be taught individually or in sequence. The curriculum supplement contains over 40 lesson plans on many diverse subjects, including community greening litter prevention, waste reduction, recycling, landfills, and much more.
Developed and field-tested by professional educators and waste experts, the curriculum supplement is being used nationwide by thousands of teachers to influence positive behavior, to foster social responsibility and respect for the environment, and to enrich the learning experience.
Please contact the office of Keep Pearland Beautiful at 281-489-2795 for more information about bringing some Waste in Place activities to your classroom. If there is sufficient interest in the community, KPB will provide a teacher training for Waste in Place. Participating teachers receive continuing education units, TEEAC credit, course materials and Pearland teachers will receive a $100 stipend.
