Refresh conservation convictions with this student-led persuasive project. Develop skills to change minds and improve the environment!
Hold a class discussion on recycling and its benefits to the environment. Find specific examples of how and why materials, such as paper and aluminum, are recycled. Research the benefits of recycling. Find statistics and examples where recycling has made a difference.
Challenge students to find out what their school does to recycle. Does it recycle paper, cans or plastic from the cafeteria, or printer cartridges, for example? What community recycling programs are operating?
How could recycling efforts be improved in your school or community? Students list all the possibilities for local recycling with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils.
Students use lists and information researched to try to persuade school or community leaders to set up or renew a paper or other recycling program. Draft a convincing letter that explains all the positive aspects of recycling. Offer ideas about how students can help make it work. Describe how recycling is effective in other schools. Proofread your letter carefully. Then write the final copy.
Students support their letters with eye-catching posters. Use Crayola Gel Markers on recycled file folders to show you are serious about conservation!
Students make cards to help get their recycling messages across. Cut recycled file folders with Crayola Scissors. Give cards to leaders and adults to generate broad community interest in Revising Recycling.
