5 collection revie sce4310
I really like this recycling collection. I think recycling is an important lesson for our elementary students. I t is important to give them value of trees, atmosphere and paper waste. I loved the idea of how articles of the collection provide ideas to teachers on how to incorporate recycling in her lessons and establish the culture “going green” to their students. Another article of the collection talks about how some schools implemented the recycling program. They provide comprehensive overview of outside recycling programs and help to raise students’ awareness of the environmental impacts. One of the articles of the collection named “materials repurposed” is one of my favorite ones. The author explains on the article how to find the purpose and function of any piece of equipment. They talk about recyclable items that the author has adapted for use in his classroom. They encourage their fellow teachers to visit their local recycling centers to see what types of reusable science teaching treasures they may find. Overall I think is a complete collection where you can find many articles related with recycling. Teachers can get many ideas on how to incorporate it during lesson plans inside and outside students’ classroom. Also, I like the idea that the articles provide many effective strategies that have proven to be effective in elementary.
