Calling all Teachers - Curriculum Materials for Educators!

As a teacher and a member of the Brooklyn Green Team, I am always looking for ways to teach my students about issues facing our environment. The NYC Department of Sanitation provides a wealth of information and curriculum materials on recycling that can be used in classrooms. The following is offered free of charge on their website:

  • school recycling guides
  • signs and decals to label recycling bins
  • coloring books for Pre-K - 1st grade
  • TrashMasters! comics for elementary school students
  • information on the Golden Apple Awards, a waste-prevention and recycling contest for NYC schools
  • NYC Teachers' RRResource Guide: RRR You Ready?, a comprehensive guide that includes lesson plans, activity sheets, dvds, and a glossary.
