Now that you have all the information you need from all of your group members, it's the time to put it all together.
1. First, as a group, you should create a Power Point presentation showing Sarah all of the reasons that she should be recycling paper, plastics, metals, and glass in her home. You should have at least 6 slides: one as an introduction, four for your materials, and finally, one for closing.
2. Next, you need to create a poster using the computer giving her good tips on recycling. She should be able to put this on the refrigerator so she sees it every day!
3. Finally, using a spreadsheet program, create a daily schedule for Sarah to follow showing when she should take her garbage and all of the recycled materials she collected throughout the day out. Think about your daily schedule when you create this. Sarah is just like you. She goes to school, eats three meals a day, likes to have some playtime with her friends, needs some time to do her homework, and always goes to bed at a good time. She also has to clean her room every day, help her parents with dinner, and she also is responsible for taking the dog outside. Oh, how could I forget! Most importantly, she takes the garbage out (or is supposed to) every week.
