Setting a good example for your students is a must. Talking about and demonstrating the practices that would make your classroom green helps model good practices. Actively recycle materials in the classroom. Talk about it and demonstrate how you do it. Cut down on the amount of paper you use in your own classroom is also important. Lastly, when you do labs, cut down on the amount of materials used and make lab groups slightly bigger. These are all great ideas that you find in this article.

The title of the article is misleading. From the title you would think the article was about going green in general. However, the article is about strategies Science teachers can take to go green in thier classroom. This article is appropriate for everyone
