Using Decision-making and Entrepreneurial Thinking
Lately, we've been showcasing "Teacher Features" on our social media where we interview local teachers on what they do to be sustainable with their students. All of these teachers inspired entrepreneurial thinking in their students as they introduced problems and inspired students to create solutions. They have shared lots of great ideas, and now they will be passed down to you!
This is a great way for your students to get a hands-on learning experience on the importance of keeping the environment free of garbage. As part of the activity, give your students a lesson on garbage solutions and how to reduce our waste.
Start your lesson with a video introducing the problem. Here is an impactful and eye-opening video clip from the movie, Wall-E. It shows what our planet would look like after being overwhelmed with human waste and has essentially reached its limit. Inspire your students to use entrepreneurial thinking to consider new ways to deal with our garbage.
