Using Decision-making and Entrepreneurial Thinking
Today marks day 48 until we reach the 50th anniversary of Earth Day! To give you ideas on how to celebrate, we're giving you some activities you can use with your students to inspire entrepreneurial thinking about recycling and caring for the earth.
1. Memes and PSAs
Have your students create recycling/sustainability memes. Use PowerPoint, Keynote, or Google Slides to use text and images and save slide as a .jpg. Make talking memes with the ChatterPix app that your students will definitely love. Download here for Apple and Android.
2. Recycling Competition
Host an earth-friendly competition with your students by splitting them up into teams and seeing who can recycle the most in a week or month. You can do this challenge in your own classroom or against other classrooms.
3. Create posters or PSAs
Let your students get creative and design their own posters or PSAs. Have them go the extra mile and create the posters using recycled or reusable materials only! Display the posters around the classroom or school and they'll feel good about their messages and creations being seen.
Here is a quick PSA video you can show your students to give them an idea about what they can say.
