Hi Andrea, A great way to keep students involved during the lesson is to include hands on activities as well as including what they may be interested in. It is important to listen to your students conversations and interests and build off of that.   Hope this helps! Brooke

Hey Andrea! This is a great question, as engaging your students is super important. I think one of the best ways to keey students involved within a lesson is to make it personal. Allow your students to be able to relate to the lesson and draw conclusions from it. Having activities that are hands on are also very beneficial. Hope this helps! Brooke

I enjoyed this book chapter as it gives a lot of activities for elementary-middle aged students can do and learn more about going green and helping the Earth. Each activity comes with a mini-lesson as well as they required worksheets to fulfill the lesson. Great resource!

5 Great Resource!!!
I enjoy this resource as it is filled with many activities for elementary aged students about recycled materials. Each activity comes with a mini lesson plan, such as materials, amount of time and steps to have a successful lesson. I would recommend this to teachers that are in the recycling unit.
