The Kitsap County Solid Waste Division offers two virtual waste reduction lessons for grades 3-5. Lessons are available on all virtual meeting platforms and engage students with Kahoot, a game-based learning platform.
Adopt-a-Worm Classroom Composting (Grades 3-5, 30 minutes)
Students are introduced to worm bin composting, the anatomy and habitat of Red Wigglers, and reducing food waste. Classroom worm compost bins are available.
Waste Reduction and Recycling (Grades 4-5, 1 hour)
Students investigate the 5 R’s of waste reduction (responsibility, reduce, reuse, repair, and recycle). Together, we develop solutions to reduce waste and improve the recycling system.
