Lesson 4: Not All Waste is Created Equal


In this lesson, students will learn about the distinction between hazardous waste and other forms of waste as well as discuss the current challenges we face in finding ways to safely dispose of this waste. First, students will discuss their own conceptions of hazardous waste. Then, they will view a teacher-directed PowerPoint which provides additional information about hazardous waste. The lesson then concludes with the viewing of videos that relate to e-waste management issues.
