The Green Classroom
I am definitely not an expert on the environment, nor do I always remember to bring reusable bags to the grocery store or turn the water off as I'm brushing my teeth or put my Sprite Zero bottle in the recycling bin. But doing my part to help the earth is important to me, as I believe it is for many people. Thankfully, I have an awesome green team at school that teaches me new tips all the time.
As teachers, we have so many opportunities to make a difference, and one of those I believe is educating our students on how to take care of the environment, whether at home, in nature, or even in our own classrooms.
I hope this blog will become a great resource for ideas on how to be green in the classroom through recycling and reusing what we already have to creatively instruct our students.
Right now, the content is slim! I've posted "link parties" under almost every category, so please browse around and add your own green ideas. There are so many amazing ideas out there, and I'd love for them all to end up here.
Thank you for your help! As I tell my kids, "Somos los héreos de la tierra." We're earth's heroes.
