This is a yearly writing project I complete with my 4th grade students. It is created to encourage students to make reducing, reusing, and recycling a part of their everyday lives. There is a writing component that meets Common Core State Standards for 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students. Additionally, there are two project ideas included for you to have your students complete. For pictorial examples of what is included please download the preview file. Thank you for taking a look!
