Type: Lesson/Unit Plan

Overview:

This lesson is the second of a two-part series on the properties and uses of different materials. It can be a continuation of the study of materials from the first lesson Materials 1: Materials and Manufacturing, or it can be a stand-alone lesson on recycling. In this lesson, students are introduced to the idea that some materials can be recycled. They will investigate the types of materials that can be reused, as well as potential uses for each type of recyclable material. Students will refer back to the story of The Three Little Pigs and discuss what happens after the story ends. They will discuss what the pigs will do with the mess that is left behind when the houses were blown down.
