Alphabet and Assessment sheets
  • Set out the following items so the class can see them clearly: a piece of paper, plastic, one glass bottle, newspaper, cans, and a bin.
  • Ask your students which of these materials they have in their homes. Ask them which objects they can reuse, or use again. Ask them which objects they can recycle, or turn into another material to use again. Remind them that all of those materials can be recycled.
  • Encourage your students to share their home experiences with the materials presented. For example, they might have cans in their refrigerators.
