|Investigate the reasons why Styrofoam cups, food containers, plates, etc. will never disappear from landfills. Design an advertising billboard for an environmental awareness campaign, and make a small scale drawing.||

|Select the three best alternatives to sanitary landfills, and, in a written proposal to a local government official, defend your choices as more environmentally sound methods of waste disposal.||The Cuyahoga River near Cleveland, Ohio was so polluted from industrial dumping that it actually caught fire. Imagine you have inside information about an industry that is polluting a river near you. What will you do? Create a flow chart with a step-by-step plan of action.||Survey the types of emissions (and their effects) from an untreated, coal-fired electricity generating station. As though you were a concerned citizen observer using scientific instruments, keep a three-day diary of your observations and create an action plan based on your observations.|
