Waste, and how we choose to handle it affects to our world's environment, that is YOUR environment, everything that sorrounds you, including the air, water, land, plants and man-made things. And since by now you probably know that you need a healthy environment for your own health and happiness, you can understand why effective waste management is so important to you and everyone else. The waste we create has to be carefully controlled to be sure that it does not harm your environment and your health.

But, what exactly is "waste"? Simply speaking, waste is anything discarded, rejected, abandoned or otherwise released in the environment in a manner (or quantity) that could have an impact on that environment.

How can you help?

You can help by learning about practicing THE THREE R's of waste management.

So, now investigate and tell me:

1. What are those 3 R's?

2. What do they consist of?

3. Make a list of waste products that can be recycled. Sort them by categories: organic, paper, glass...

Los jeroglíficos fueron un sistema de escritura inventado por los antiguos egipcios para comunicarse. Fueron utilizados desde la etapa predinástica hasta el siglo IV.
Se trata de un sistema complejo de escritura al mismo tiempo figurativa, simbólica y fonética en un mismo texto, una misma frase, incluso condensado en una misma palabra.
La escritura y la lectura de los mismos era extremadamente complicada, de hecho no todos los egipcios eran capaces de llevarlas a cabo. Por ello, no fue hasta 1799 cuando se pudieron descodificar los antiguos jeroglíficos egipcios encontrados y conservados.
Contesta a las siguientes cuestiones:
  1. Explica qué importante hallazgo ocurrió en ese año.
  2. Adjunta la imagen de un jeroglífico egipcio que te llame la atención.
  3. Publica tu nombre en jeroglífico; para ello pincha en el siguiente enlace.
