Over the past few weeks, the first and second grade students have been working towards using better recycling and composting practices to reduce our classroom waste. We "dissected" our Recycling, Trash and Compost. Some friends realized they weren't doing a thorough job rinsing and recycling their containers from lunch. We "fixed" our recycling mistakes and practiced our understanding by cutting and sorting pictures of familiar trash which prompted a hearty discussion. Each day after snack and lunch the children are helping and keeping each other accountable to sort materials properly. To further our understanding of Reusing certain items, we have explored several ways to reuse plastic water bottles including a Sensory Bottle and "I Spy" Game. In what ways can you reduce your waste at home?
Below, we've included the Compost, Recycling, Landfill Signs we use in the classroom for your at-home use.
Help us reinforce the importance of Recycling and foster a deep appreciation and respect for Earth in our young learners!
