As part of Earth Day, we are learning about the 3 R’s, reduce, reuse and recycle and so we wanted to share with you this Free Recycling Sort. It’s an easy and engaging activity for the kids to help them understand the concept of sorting. We actually used the free printable in 3 different ways in the classroom.
We started by making an anchor chart for the 3 R’s. As a class, we looked at the pictures one by one adding them to the chart under the appropriate spot writing in the corresponding answers.
Next, each of the kids got a black and white copy to color, cut and paste on a large piece of construction paper. They could refer back to the anchor chart if they needed a bit of help.
Lastly, we made one last color copy, laminated it and turned it into a center for early finishers.
So many fun possibilities from one printable. You can download your free copy now.
Let us know how you use it in your classroom.
