In Lesson 1, students have learned what values are and have identified and shared about their individual values. In this lesson, students will broaden their definition of values by connecting their individual values to the values of the community, especially in regards to the issue of promoting a sustainable environment. They will learn about the Three Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) and come up with ways to turn waste in the community into resources. *NOTE: The teacher will bring one type of waste (e.g. paper, cans, bottles, plastic bags, etc.) that is most prominent in the context of the community. The waste chosen for this lesson plan is bottles but this can be adapted.
