Our Recycling lesson plan examines what it means to recycle, identifies common items that are recycled, and lists the three steps to successful recycling. During this lesson, students are asked to work creatively with a partner to create something new out of materials given to them by their teacher in order to demonstrate one form that recycling can take (reusing or repurposing); students then present their creation to the class, practicing their presentation skills. Students are also asked to circle the correct word to fill in given blanks or answer questions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson concepts and material.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define recycling, identify common items that are recycled, and list the three steps to successful recycling.
