Using Decision-making and Entrepreneurial Thinking
This Recycle Bins decision-making lesson involves students "working" as consultants for a movie theater, engaged to make a decision about the best place to locate new recycling bins. This interactive Nearpod activity below hits Florida science standards in 1-3, but can be adapted to other grade levels for ELA and Social Studies. Here is the editable link so you can download the activity to your Nearpod account and edit it to suit your needs.
We have also created a full lesson plan that includes student guides, videos, and informational texts you could use to supplement the Nearpod lesson.
After your students complete the lesson, they can create a meme to encourage others to recycle. You can use an online meme generator; however, there are often inappropriate memes that show up in these. An alternative is to use PowerPoint to create the meme and export the slide as a .jpg. You can also use the free Chatterpix app. Chatterpix is an app that allows you to take a photo of anything, add a mouth, and have it speak. You can also add text and make your own talking meme!
