First we worked on some some pages that were reinforcing recycle, reuse and reduce.
We spent one morning sorting various recyclable materials along with cutting out pictures from food adds. My kiddoes love to cut things up, so this was a perfect activity for them.
After we did this sort, we kept some of the pictures for their sorting page in their notebook. They were either able to use pictures for each category or for some of them I had real items. For metal, I cut up pieces of foil to glue on. They could cut up plastic bags for the plastic category. This was a great assessment piece. I was able to see who understood what was recyclable.
We also learned about the fourth R, rot. We went to a worm farm and learned why worms are an important part of our world. I made some pages for their worm studies.
I still want to add a reflection page, and will probably do that later this week. If you want to read more about the Earth Day/recycling interactive notebook pack, click below.
That's all I've got for now folks, I hope you are having a fabulous week!
