This bulletin board was created as part of a larger unit on environmental science with students in the Secondary Program at Perkins School for the Blind. Students collected trash items that were found around the school campus and sorted them into categories of paper and plastic.
- Identify that recycling is the process of reclaiming and reusing raw materials.
- Examine visually/tactually samples of metal, plastic, glass and paper accurately identifying each material.
- Discuss and list several reasons to recycle including saving money, using fewer natural resources and reducing environmental damage.
