Graphing a Cleaned-Out Desk!

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: SLC, Utah
Date Submitted: April 16, 2001

As part of your recycling unit, combine math graphing with a desired outcome - a clean desk! Have students pull out items in their desk and categorize. (ex: paper, broken pencils, books, etc.) Then they can decide whether the materials can be reduced, reused, or recycled (or just taken home where it may belong!) You may want to discuss ways a broken crayon or pencil can be reused instead of simply throwing it in the garbage. Ask each student to then graph the results of what they found in their desks. We have found that bar and picture graphs work the best. In the future, they will think twice before simply throwing something away.
