Directions for Recycling to Protect the Watershed
During the instructional planning stages, the teacher may wish to read About the Watershed: Instructional Framework, especially parts VI. Conservation, Restoration, and Stewardship of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, and VII. Chesapeake Bay Watershed Issues and Trends: Alternatives and Consequences.
Understanding the Project
Many students today recognize the three-arrow symbol that means a container can be recycled, and most are already familiar with the idea of recycling. Therefore, the teacher may not need to spend much time introducing the concept. Instead, the class may devote initial time to deciding whether to opt for collection materials for recycling, encouraging use of products made of recycled materials, or reusing recycled materials themselves. Each option is explained in Selecting an Option.
