Waste and recycling project

March 19, 2019

We read "Why Should I Recycle?" by Jen Green. We talked as a group about recycling and composting, with many of the students eager to share about their practices at home. A bag of materials was brought in, and each student had the opportunity to decide if a particular material would go to the landfill, recycling center, or compost. A list of what is recyclable by the provider serving our area was given out for students to take home as a reference.
