Mrs. Garcia from Key West FL is requesting reading nooks, desks & storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Recycling & Our Effects on the Environment

Help me give my students recycling bins. Recycling will create a feeling of pride in taking care of their school, community, and world, while learning about how humans impact the environment.

My Project

We live about 100 miles away from the mainland. Maintaining our small 2 mile by 4 mile island is imperative. Allowing students to take lead in setting up, collecting, and maintaining a recycling program will instill a feeling of pride and ownership. I have partnered with a company that has supplied us with large sacks to recycle specific materials. We will start small and get clubs and teacher buy in. These bins will be strategically placed in rooms where teachers and students can monitor materials. Students will focus on how humans impact their environment, both bad and good.
