School Kit Overview

Lesson Plans

Select the lesson plans that fit best with your classroom including making a mind map of what you know about recycling, make a collage of packaging, make recycled postcards, create a recycled orchestra and learn about the waste hierarchy.

Student Activities

In addition to playing Grow Recycling, student activities allow students to practice other skills with a recycling theme.  Draw your own recycling bin, write a story about waste, crack a message code with math and find the hidden plastics.


You will find questions and an answer key about recycling, connecting the knowledge gained from playing Grow Recycling and the classroom activities. You can do them together individually, in small groups or as a class.
