Planet Protector

planetprotectorChildren take pride in being given responsibilities if those responsibilties are manageable and explained. Let them help out in the classroom!

Goals:

  • To encourage recycling and environmental awareness
  • To promote self-esteem and cooperation

Before You Start:
Recycle some cardboard boxes for the activity. Set out scissors, crayons and markers.

Let’s Get Started!
Step 1.
Cut a slit up from the opening of the bag to the bottom, and cut out the bottom of the bag, leaving the boxy shape intact. You can leave a lip of paper as a “collar.”

Step 2.
Cut two holes, one on each side, for sleeves. The bag should be in a “vest” shape. Decorate it or invite the children to decorate it with a drawn on “badge” and symbols of either recycling or the earth.

Step 3.
Each week, choose a new child to wear the vest and take charge of recycling duties for the classroom.

Furthermore:
Talk with the children about different organizations that help take care of our environment. Discuss other ways children could help the environment at home.
