This activity guide for grades K-12 reinforces the concepts of recycling, reducing, and reusing through a series of youth-oriented activities. The guide incorporates a video-based activity, multiple session classroom activities, and activities requiring group participation and student conducted research. Constructivist learning theory was considered during the development of activities. The guide is divided into the following sections: (1) 12 elementary and middle school classroom activities; (2) eight middle and high school classroom activities; (3) school recycling programs; (4) trivia, facts, and other information; (5) listing of 338 supplementary materials (activity booklets, coloring and comic books, books, catalogs, curricula, extras, magazines, recycling programs, and videos); (6) listing of 39 environmental organizations; (7) approximately 1,300 California local government and community contacts; and (8) a glossary. Many activities incorporate science, history and social science, English and language arts, and mathematics and art. Most activities include methods for teacher and student evaluations. Spanish translations are provided for some activity materials, including letters to parents, several take-home activities and the glossary. (LZ)
