Hi, we are the Stockbridge Central School TRY for the environment waste solutions team! For the past three months we have been teaching the first and second grade class about where to put compost, trash,recycling. In our third lesson we taught the kids about nonrenewable and renewable resources. A renewable resource is one that can not completely used up, like wind or water. A non-renewable resource is oil or coal.
Our lesson started off with a journey of a plastic water bottle, where he started of as crude oil. He became a water bottle and eventually became an astronaut’s sweater.
After we finished reading the story, they made mobiles! The mobiles showed how everyday items are made with lots of resources. In lesson three they made zero waste toothpaste.
