We all recycle- but what happens to the materials we are recycling? This sort gets students thinking about they types of products made from recycled materials- great thinking activity for Earth Day!

Tips for Digital and Distance Learning: Cut and Paste sorting activities are great for interactive learning and application of concepts, but can be tricky to do in distance learning. Here are some ideas on how to use these in this crazy time we are experiencing.

If your students have a printer and can get access to the sort documents:

This product comes as one large PDF file. To use it digitally and not have to give all the pages online (with the answers) follow these directions:

1.Open document (PDF)

2.Click Print

3.In Destination (where it typically has your printer listed) choose save as PDF

4.Select the pages you want to share with your class

5.Click SAVE- this will direct you to save the document –name it and save it whatever makes sense for you and Click SAVE

6.Share digitally!

•Have students print and then cut out the sections and place them in what they think is the correct spot.

•Then either have them send a picture to you on Google classroom, review the sort in a Zoom session or post an answer key for them to check their answers (this works as a formative assignment).

If your students do not have access to the documents or a printer try this:

•In a Zoom session- give students the categories you are sorting into.

•Read each example and have students decide which category it belongs to. Then review the answers. This is another formative assignment.
