Did you know that Americans produce an average of 4.7 pounds of garbage per day? Have you ever wondered what happens to all that trash? First graders at CCE experienced an in-class field trip where they built a model of a garbage truck using Legos, while learning how garbage can be used to create energy. The lesson included discussion of landfills and some challenges associated with waste disposal. First graders participated in an imaginative, 3-dimensional, hands-on experience that promoted team building. Click on the heading above to see the first graders video.
