  • Description:
    Educator’s Guide has fourteen lessons and activities reprinted from a variety of sources. The activities are presented in three sections addressing the origins of marine debris, its impacts, and what can be done. The lessons and activities included in this kit will introduce learners to concepts associated with marine debris. Activities are divided into three sections by topic, and each section includes curated lessons and activities for a variety of age groups and teaching situations. Across the Great Lakes basin, many educators are interested in the topic of marine debris but lack the resources needed to explore this topic with their students. Welcome to the Trash Trunk: A Kit for Learning About Marine Debris! In addition to this Educator’s Guide with lessons and activities, the kit contains display cards, equipment and materials needed to perform the activities (see list of materials on page 7). Note that not all equipment needed to perform each activity is included. The activity descriptions identify both included supplies and additional needed materials. We hope the Trash Trunk provides educators with the items that are more difficult to obtain. The fourteen activities are presented in three sequential sections addressing the origins of marine debris, its impacts, and what can be done. The display cards included within the Trash Trunk are recommended for specific activities, but you can use them to introduce a concept, support additional activities, or simply display them in your educational setting. Trash is found in all aquatic environments, ponds, lakes, rivers, streams and oceans. The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration​(NOAA) specifically includes the Great Lakes watershed in its definition of marine debris. “Marine debris is defined as any persistent solid material that is manufactured or processed and directly or indirectly, intentionally or unintentionally​, disposed of or abandoned into the marine environment or the Great Lakes” (Public Law 109–449 Marine Debris Research, Prevention and Reduction Act, 2006). This Educator’s Guide therefore uses the term “marine debris.” Note that other educational resources may use the term “aquatic debris.” If the original source of an activity used the term “aquatic debris,” that term has been retained.
