In general, I don’t think students realize what or how much garbage their family throws away, nor the importance of recycling, which isn’t all that difficult.
With that in mind, I designed the “What’s In Your Garbage?” packet, which includes . . .
* A letter
* A “Tally Time” data collection
* Graphing worksheet
with a matching . . .
* Whole-group graphing activity
* 2 writing prompt
worksheets (boy & girl
options), plus . . .
* A 3D writing prompt craftivity
(“I Can!” dangler) to pull it all together.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping that these activities help to make your students more aware, as well as advocates for recycling.
