The students and teacher will go on a walk through the schoolyard/neighbourhood doing a litter collection/clean-up. They will use the items collected to begin a discussion about objects, the different materials that they are made of, and why they are made of those particular materials. These items can be sorted into garbage, recycling, and compost, discussing reasons for the choices and why it is important to use the 3 R’s (Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle) in everyday life. An investigation of object characteristics and material properties will result from this shared experience. After gaining knowledge of different objects, materials, and joining methods, students will be asked to design and build a structure using appropriate material and joining choices.
