On recycle avec Ecomaine

In science, the CE2 and CM1 have been working on waste and recycling. We had discussions, we wondered about trash, where it all goes, what happens after it lands in your trash can…  

 Yesterday, Leo from Ecomaine came and presented some very interesting facts and information to us.

We put our gloves on to be safe

We brought recyclable waste from home and we worked with it. We weighed the total amount of trash we threw away in one day in our class.

Then, we had an activity during which we divided and organized waste and recyclables into different categories: glass, plastic, carboard..

Our science session on waste will end with a visit to the Ecomaine recycling facility in Portland so the students will be able to see with their own eyes what happens to trash.
