Lessons for teaching children how to recycle, reduce and reuse include scrap paper and container projects. Another lesson is the importance of saving water by reducing usage.
Both teachers and parents play a role in teaching children valuable lessons in saving the earth through recycling, reducing and reusing resources. Make useful products using scrap paper and empty containers from consumer goods. For example, children can turn empty soup cans into colorful pencil holders by decorating scrap pieces of paper and gluing it to the can.
Lessons for saving water include teaching children to place a bowl in the sink when washing their hands to catch the running water and then discussing ways to use the collected water, such as to water classroom plants or house plants. Children could also be taught to turn off the water while brushing their teeth and to take five-minute showers.
