I created these math centers (or stations :) as I like to call them) to use with my Michael Recycle Earth Day Unit https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Stacygooch http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Michael-Recycle-Earth-Day-Literacy-Unit-636843
I came up with the idea one day when I went to throw away my water bottle and thought I could reuse the cap for a math manipulative! What a perfect use for Earth Day!! I saved all my bottle caps from milk jugs to water bottles to power drinks…fun!! My students absolutely LOVE using these caps to work math equations!! It starts a wonderful discussion about Earth Day and how we can reuse, recycle, and reduce! I start by reading Michael Recycle by Ellie Bethel. They are hooked right away!!
I have included response sheets and 5 word problem response sheets ,as well as, pictures of how I like to set up my stations:)
I would love to hear from you and how you and your students celebrate and discuss Earth Day, please visit my blog:
I will have pics up to show how we do what we do in first grade!
Thank you for stopping by!! Happy Earth Day!
