Caring for the environment is an important aspect of everyday life. Everyone has to do their part to try to make this world a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable place. Recycling is an important aspect to achieve this. The younger the students are when they are introduced to the concept of recycling, the more likely it is that they will continue to do so when they grow up. By introducing recycling bins to your childcare /school environment, students will have to think about their waste management multiple times a day. It will make them realise that they can make good and bad environmental choices and decisions. Students identify items to recycle and which ones they can not be recycle.
Recycling bins can be part of a lesson plan by letting the students put their waste in the correct bin. Use the compost created by the students to help the plants in your garden grow. Students will explore different ways of managing wastes sustainably. Also how these may include the principles of reduce, reuse, recycle and replace. Recycling is an important aspect of the curriculum, in both Science and Geography. These vinyl stickers are perfect visual aids to show students which bin to place their items.
