This K-2 lesson plan from National Geographic was created as a resource for Geography Awareness Week 2000, which is based on the theme of conservation. In this lesson, students will become aware of ways they can cut down on the amount of trash they produce by buying products that are not overpackaged and by reusing materials they might normally throw out. The site also includes links to related National Geographic Web sites, US Geography Standards, teacher resource Web sites, discussion questions, and extension activities. Less
