Students will gain an understanding of how and why recycling helps our environment while recording and comparing
conscious choices they are personally making while setting goals for the future.
Students will begin by taking a short T/F quiz as a preview to the information they will be learning. It is highly
encouraged for the teacher to read aloud each question to encourage vocabulary connections. They will then watch the
video about recycling.
Students will be introduced to the week long homework assignment (preferably beginning Monday and ending Friday)
which asks them to record the amount of single use plastic they use each day and whether they recycled it or not.
Teacher should check in with students each day to make sure there is follow through.
