Minimal equipment is required, which makes these games primed for classroom fun!
Lessons with Each Activity
Give your students a tangible way of appreciating the importance of environmental sustainability, while also encouraging their daily dose of physical activity. Each game within this book puts a fundamental focus on treating the Earth with respect and encourages students to explore the benefits of reducing waste, reusing materials, and recycling what must be discarded. As students learn more about these topics and emulate them firsthand through each of the carefully designed games, they’ll begin to see how environmental responsibility impacts things like climate change and global warming.
Each of these going green activities for kids also drives home the core concept by utilizing materials that reinforce the lesson. Students will learn how to recycle paper, will repurpose plastic bottles into bowling pins, and will practice identifying and sorting recyclable materials.
