Waste & Recycling
Let's Talk Trash this Tuesday!
Making Paper – Students watch a short video to see how paper is made from trees. Students then recycle old newsprint into new paper and discover that recycling works. They use their newly made paper to create art with a positive message about the environment and recycling.
Plastic Bottle Planter - The purpose of this lesson is both to expose students to a meaningful, practical way to reuse a common waste product and to raise awareness of the overuse of disposable water bottles. The simple act of converting a disposable bottle into a small desktop planter allows students to express themselves in a unique way.
