Are These Items Recyclable?


Ms. Kotel’s first grade students learned a great lesson on whether to recycle – or throw out – a variety of items.

The “Too Good to Throw Away” presentation is a three-part recycling education program in which students learn about the 3 R’s – reduce, reuse and recycle – while having fun in the process!

The presentation involved a lesson on natural resources – and students learned many of the things that they looked at are renewable in comparison with a variety of things that are not renewable.

Fun activities such as letting the kids figure out which items were recyclable and which were not provided practical knowledge and skills to help students make intelligent decisions with recycling now and in the future.
