Junk Mail Overload!

Students will: enlist the help of their families to collect and track the amount of junk mail that arrives in the course of one week; use the data collected to complete a chart that estimating the amount of junk mail the family will throw away in a month and a year; use the class data set to figure the average amount of junk mail a family receives; use that data to estimate how much junk mail the entire community throws away in a week, a month, and a year; explore ways of cutting back on the amount of junk mail; create brochures to share what they have learned about cutting back on junk mail; do a follow-up activity in several months to see whether what they do to cut back on junk mail has had an impact in the community.
