Taking Action

This Taking Action lesson plan also includes:

In the final lesson of a four-part series, kids take what they have learned about the importance of recycling and reducing one's impact on the environment and put it into action by creating posters. Originally intended for a contest for the city of Tucson, the posters would be great for Earth Day projects or environmental awareness campaigns around town. The posters can focus on conservation, reducing waste, taking advantage of neighborhood recycling programs, or reusing materials. In order to incorporate technology and make this project even more eco-friendly, have kids create their posters or brochures on the computer and post them online.
