In this lesson, students explore the components of a landfill, focusing on how landfill liners prevent leaks and learning how solid waste is one of the causes of climate change.
Step 1 - Inquire: Students learn how long it takes for a plastic bottle to decompose and the importance of landfill design to protect groundwater.
Step 2 - Investigate: Students learn the components of landfill designs.
Step 3 - Inspire: Students experiment with different materials to find out which material is best at preventing water leakage and relate the experiment to landfill engineering.
Students will be able to:
- Explain how solid waste is one of the causes of climate change.
- Discuss a few solutions for reducing solid waste.
- Design an experiment to learn about the importance of landfill engineering to reduce groundwater pollution.
