Let's Continue to Use Recycled Materials for Earth Day

My students need recycled napkins, tissues, folders, pens, correction tapes, and trash bags in honor of Earth Day.

My Students

Do you remember the first time that you ever used recycled materials and how you felt?

I teach 22 first graders in a Title 1 School located in a high poverty and high crime area in Pennsylvania.

All of my students receive free breakfast and free lunch. The majority of my students are are now reading at the proper reading and math level and I couldn't be prouder of them. Many of my students come from homes where English is not spoken.

My Project

I would love for my students to use recycled materials on an everyday basis in our classroom. I would like for them to be aware that they should not be wasteful and that they should try to use materials that are good for the earth. I want them to celebrate Earth Day everyday. I want to teach them that most items that they use in school can be made out of recycled items. It would be wonderful if my students used recycled napkins, tissues, folders, pens, correction tapes, and trash bags in honor of Earth Day.

Please help my students to be good to the earth each and everyday.

It would be an awesome way to celebrate Earth Day on a daily basis. Please help my students be the best that they can be.
