We started this challenge by watching the song reduce/reuse/recycle (link provided) and the Youtube video provided on the website (Recycling for kids with waste management's Mr. Cool can.). We then had a class discussion around the importance of recycling, reusing and reducing in order for us to be more environmentally aware and more energy efficient. In groups we brainstormed items in our homes and in the classroom that we could recycle, and then shared them with the rest of the class. In groups, we researched the process that certain items go through in order to be recycled.
