Wee Recyclers. An Activity Guide for Ages 3-5.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Natural Resources, Madison.
Recycling and reusing are skills that can be developed in early child care programs. This activity guide is intended to help teach children (ages 3-5) about recycling using simple, hands-on activities. Teacher-directed activities involve setting up a recycling center, sorting recyclable items, landfills, litter, a recycling alphabet, and ways that nature recycles. Each activity contains teacher background information, directions, and suggestions for additional related activities. Additional resources include stories and plays, songs, games, take-home recycling ideas, a glossary of 31 terms, and a list of 40 resources. A packet of supplementary materials complements the guide and contains posters; a set of recycling labels; 34 related crafts with instructions; masters of activity sheets that can be reproduced and taken home by the children; props; and patterns.
