More Science Camp Fun and Another Freebie

As promised, here's another activity I taught during science camp. First, I read the students the book, Where Does the Garbage Go.I love using the Let's-Read-And-Find-Out-Science books. Then we made an edible landfill. I asked many questions along the way. The kids were really surprised to find out how many layers of protection were put down before trash was ever added to the landfill. The only thing I might try to replace is the Fruit Roll-up. It really doesn't go with vanilla pudding. I was thinking of having the kids roll out a piece of caramel. Click {HERE} for a copy of the directions.
Enjoy!
