Students will sort the pictures of recyclable items into the correct envelope or bag. I use this as an independent work task during our vocational stations time. Our city makes us pay for trash bags, but allows unlimited recycling. Understanding what can be recycled is an important skill to have, especially in order to save money!
Note: Depending on what state you live in, you might not need a redeemable envelope. Those pictures can still be laminated and will be sorted into the appropriate folder.
