Mardi gras – Fat Tuesday

MardiGras-masks

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.
