Find out what your school does to recycle. Does it recycle paper, cans or plastic from the cafeteria, or printer cartridges, for example? What community recycling programs are operating?
Hold a class discussion on recycling and its benefits to the environment. Find specific examples of how and why materials, such as paper and aluminum, are recycled. Research the benefits of recycling. Find statistics and examples where recycling has made a difference.
How could recycling efforts be improved in your school or community? List all the possibilities for local recycling with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils. If you need to make corrections, just erase and start again.
