Think Green Recycling Environmental Award Certificate

Recycling, Environmental, and Think Green Lesson Plans for Teachers blue bullet point I have included a sticker chart in this recycling and environmental set of teaching resources because I use this incentive chart with my students during the months of March (Think Green) and April (Earth Day is April 22).

blue bullet point I begin this unit in March to tie in with green for St. Patrick's Day and finish it in April to tie in with April 22, Earth Day.

blue bullet point During March and April, my students complete various tasks to earn stickers on their Think Green sticker charts. These tasks range from bringing in aluminum cans from home, collecting paper in classrooms to recycle, or writing about something that they have done at home that helps to conserve energy or protect the environment.

blue bullet point I finish this unit on April 22, Earth Day. On this day, our class has a Think Green Earth Day party. All of the food items for this party are required to be green in color or healthy vegetables. My students have brought in cucumber sticks, green pasta with peas and broccoli in it, tossed salads, tabouli, and for dessert I have made green jello.

Recycling, Environmental, and Think Green Teaching Resources blue bullet point For our Think Green Earth Day party, we use paper plates (no plastic allowed) and students bring in their own fork or spoon so they don't throw plastic forks and spoons in the trash. If my students bring in food to share with their classmates, it has to be in washable containers which students would bring back home with them.

blue bullet point Although my students were having a party with primarily healthy food, they had a great time and enjoyed every minute of it.

blue bullet point By talking about how we can prepare for our Think Green Earth Day party so that we won't have to throw away any plastic or aluminum foil, it made my students think about how they could follow these same procedures for other similar events.

Heidi, I just had to write and let you know that your website has helped me create the most awesome author study of Roald Dahl's books. My students loved completing the big animal shaped projects you designed for The Enormous Crocodile, Esio Trot, and The Giraffe, and the Pelly and Me. For the final project, they had so much fun writing and drawing about the characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory using your Willy Wonka Factory project. Thanks for sharing your scrumdiddlyumptious ideas !

I just wanted to say thank you for the most amazing teaching resources that I have ever come across in my thirty years of teaching. I have used many of your book report sets this year and my students absolutely loved them. What was particularly pleasing was seeing some of my reluctant readers (especially the boys) really wanting to read books and complete the activities. Keep up the great work!
