Extraction to E-Waste Crosscutting Concepts


Crosscutting concepts help us make sense of big ideas in new ways. With these graphic organizers, you will model aspects of the lithium-ion battery supply chain from many perspectives.

Fill out these graphic organizers to understand:

  • Structure and function: How do the properties of a lithium-ion battery contribute to the way it works? 
  • System and system models: Resource extraction is done in an ecosystem. What components make up that ecosystem? What relationships exist between those components?
  • Stability and change: What relationships exist between human action and ecosystem effects during resource extraction?
