1.2 million students spend their days in K-12 schools across Washington State. You can ensure they gain the skills and hands-on learning opportunities needed to be successful leaders. Our state depends upon the next generation… And Washington Green Schools is working with you to give them the tools they need to succeed.
Welcome back to the mysterious world of Zombie Guacamole! Last time we met, we explored lessons and activities from Zombie Guacamole to delve into concepts in Life Sciences like decomposition and the cycling of matter and nutrients in an ecosystem. We also explored where our waste goes when we throw it “away” by visiting the Terrace Heights Landfill and modeling our own mini-landfill using a jar and apple slice.
Join us for Part 2 of Zombie Guacamole, where we focus on how waste is connected to the changing climate and how we can guide our students to take these concepts and apply them to an environmental action project at their school (or home)! We’ll explore school success stories in waste management as well as school grounds and gardens. We will explore career options in our state’s food systems and discuss how we can leverage local assets in our fight to protect the planet.
