Paper Recycling Project for the Environment

The cost of this proposal is [price], including shipping and [fulfillment].

I teach 32 fourth-grade students at PS 28 in Washington Heights. All of my students are eligible to receive free lunch and are mostly Dominican-American and African-American. We have an upcoming unit in November on the earth and the environment. I would love for my students to really see recycling in action by doing it themselves -- not just putting a can in a recycle bin, but by truly shredding up used paper and remaking it into paper that can be used again. This project would benefit my students because they would be able to see and actually control the complete cycle of recycling -- and understand what the word recycle means in a hands-on way. They would also see how important it is to reuse what we already have on earth, further encouraging them to waste less paper. With so much trash on the streets in the community, it is vital to help my students understand the importance of keeping our earth beautiful and how recycling can help. I would like to do this project with another class whose teacher I plan my theme units with, so two kits would be wonderful. Please consider my proposal. It would help bring in science, art, environmental awareness, and more into my literacy unit on the environment in a fun, educational and hands-on way. Thank you! The cost of two Arnold Grummer's Papermill Station for Groups is $253,including shipping and disposable camera.
