  Let’s Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle

 

Worms, worms, worms.  This is definitely our most popular program, and for several reasons.  As very efficient recyclers, worms are a great way to introduce the concept of recycling, nature’s way.  There are many hands-on activities that teach “worm” fundamentals, including their movement, life cycles, and digestive systems.  We will answer the question:  Why are worms so important to our environment?  This program comes with a workbook called “Worms Eat Our Garbage, Classroom Activities for a Better Environment”, written by renowned “worm” authors Appelhof, Fenton and Harris.  If requested, we will set up a worm bin for your class, so that you and your students can observe the worms’ recycling efforts.  This program is fun for everyone involved and works great for any age group.

 

This program was first introduced for Earth Day 2005 . Environmental Jeopardy is a one hour ‘game’ that teaches your students about many environmental concerns (all with trash reduction in mind) while offering solutions and answers to their questions. Participation includes the entire class and gets everyone excited about protecting the earth. This program works best for one class at a time.

     Coffee Can Paper Recycling

 

During this program your students will learn a little bit about how paper is made and what we can do to help recycle more paper. The program concludes with students making their own sheet of recycled paper. This program comes complete with all the tools and activities and we even clean up when we leave!

 

Seasonal Crafts

 

This program will encourage creativity and resourcefulness while helping students create a craft item out of something they might usually throw away. Some of our crafts may be seasonal in nature, so let us know if you would like something special for your class. If you would like to request a craft idea, we will do our best to accommodate. For this program your students will need scissors and glue. Our craft program works best with single classes and is recommended for any age group.
