Using Decision-making and Entrepreneurial Thinking
You probably didn’t realize that many of the household items and containers you throw away can actually be reused for you and your students. Many items can be used for organizing materials, projects, arts and crafts and more.
Demonstrating these eco-friendly habits to students teaches them to be more environmentally aware, which helps support sustainability efforts in the long term! You can bring these items in yourself or tell your students to bring them in to really place them in a sustainable headspace. Here are 20 creative ways to reuse and recycle everyday items in the classroom.
All of these items can easily be found in your home, and it only takes one simple step to make a huge difference in sustainability efforts. By using these in your classroom, you are not only helping the environment but also teaching these good habits to students.
Sustainability Superheroes created a workshop where K-12 teachers turned trash into treasure and learned ideas on sustainable projects and activities they can do with their students. See what they learned and created here.
