ABSTRACT
This article presents an activity program to define decomposition, biodegradable, landfill, and compost. By setting up a demonstration and monitoring it for several weeks, the group can make some discoveries about the garbage that ends up in landfills. Start the activity by explaining that decomposition is the process by which materials break down. When an organism dies, it is broken down by a succession of other living things. Initially scavengers, such as vultures or beetles, feed on the dead organism.
