Tuesday, February 28, 2017, will be the day before Ash Wednesday and the start of the season of Lent. Mardi Gras is a last hoorah and is celebrated throughout the world with feasting, partying, and general indulgence. In New Orleans revelers throw and collect purple, green, and gold beads.
Students get a chance to examine the monetary and environmental cost of this bead exuberance with our unit pricing and recycling activity.
For members we have an editable Word doc and solutions.
