As a teacher, I’m always looking for things for my students to do to make a difference in the community. Community service projects are not only beneficial for the community, they are just as beneficial for the students. Today, I’m going to share something that would be easy for teachers to implement in their classrooms.
The Recycle Rally is a free nationwide program that directly benefits K-12 schools and students by providing valuable incentives and resources to help make recycling easy, fun, and rewarding. It doesn’t matter if your school has been recycling for years or is wanting to get started, the Recycle Rally will help boost the excitement and provide all kinds of tools to make recycling a big deal in your kid’s school.
There are many things your students can do in the school with recycling. If you’re in need of some ideas, I have some that your students would love:
*Decorate school recycling bins
*Have classroom recycling contests
*Do an art challenge with recycled objects
*Upcycle used containers into functional pieces for the classroom
*Create designated scrap paper areas
*Hang signs around the school to encourage recycling
*Organize a campus clean up
*Create persuasive writing pieces
*Make recycling videos
*Plant a garden
*Plant a tree
Since the school year just started for many, this would be a great thing to kick off at the beginning of the year. If you would like more information on this program, visit PepsiCo Recycle Rally.
