Recycle, a Daily Way of Life in the Middle

Help me give my students a way to learn to recycle paper, plastic bottles and aluminum cans at school to benefit their environment with common area bins to collect plastic bottles and aluminum cans.

My Students

Every student (700) at our rural Georgia school will benefit. A core of 100 energetic students (from Communications class) will educate and promote the "Recycle, A Daily Way of Life in the Middle" program to the entire school as we recycle paper, plastic bottles and aluminum cans we have used during the day. These "student recycling ambassadors" will literally canvas the entire school collecting and promoting recycling. All walks of life and all socioeconomic levels join together to protect our environment.

All students will learn about caring for and protecting our environment through Science, Social Studies, and Communications classes.

Then, each student will have the opportunity to actually recycle his or her plastic bottles, paper and aluminum cans each day, by placing the items in a brand new recycling bin. Students will empty the bins each week.

Our students will see the signs (created by students) that say..."What did you recycle today? when they leave the school each day. And.."Look for the recycling bins tomorrow!" The students are excited and want to get to work!

My Project

Recycling, A Daily Way of Life in the Middle will educate students and staff about the importance and benefits of recycling. Our students will promote and pursue the actual recycling of paper, plastic bottles and aluminum cans at our school... This would be an interdisciplinary lesson that educates students about the environment, energy, waste management, working as a team, and community and personal responsibility.

Extensive education will occur in the school; from what to put in the new recycling bins requested with this project, to understanding landfills, jobs affected by recycling and the future of the environment.

Education would occur through all grades' Science and Social Studies classes. Students will write and create newscasts, announcements and posters in Communications classes to promote recycling.

The student team would be set up for collecting items in grades, offices, and other locations. Items for collection will be specified and days of the ​collection will be determined as well…picked up by students in an orderly and sanitary fashion. These new recycling bins will be an integral part of a permanent effort by all students and teachers to recycle at our school.
