The King County Solid Waste Division's newest assembly show, Curiosity QuestDownload PDF , 300 K, entertains as it educates students about waste reduction, recycling, and composting. Presented by two professional actors in a lively, interactive format, it reminds students how to keep waste out of the landfill and make choices that protect the land, oceans, and atmosphere. Older students learn the effects of the 4 Rs (rethink, reduce, reuse, recycle) on climate change.
The assembly is presented October through mid-January and includes two versions – primary and intermediate – with each running about 40 minutes. Schools with more than 350 students receive two assemblies. Use the assembly discussion guide, available in EnglishDownload PDF , 700 K and SpanishDownload PDF , 900 K, to introduce concepts to your students before the assembly or review them after the assembly.
Schools that schedule the assembly can select two to four classroom workshops, which expand on the assembly messages. Though the assembly is limited to the first 50 schools that sign up, all King County elementary schools (outside of Seattle) may participate in the Green Team program. Our Green Team specialist will assist teachers and school environmental clubs that want to take on projects to conserve natural resources and protect the environment.
