Empower your students with success stories about waste management from across the globe. Learn what we are doing right when we see how other countries and communities manage the waste from natural disasters like hurricanes and tsunamis. Using ready-to-use information and activities for remedial students we have also outlined what initiatives countries are taking to handle waste from mining, oil and solid waste in oceans, air pollutants and smog in cities, even how we deal with space junk. Written to grade and using simplified language and vocabulary, social studies concepts are presented in a way that makes them more accessible to students and easier to understand. Comprised of reading passages, student activities and overhead transparencies.
