Recycling Activities and Posters: This download has posters and activities for sorting pictures of different trash objects into the five categories for recycling: compost, metal, glass, plastic, and paper. The posters can be used to add to your classroom recycling unit or Earth Day theme. All of the recycling posters, sorting bin labels, material poster sets, sorting mats, and picture cards for sorting bins and sorting mats come in both black and white digital printable form and color print form. The sorting mats are to be used by sticking the trash items unto the correct mat. Use it to set up a recycling area in your classroom. Your students can also use large containers as recycling bins for sorting the pictures. I added bin labels for such an activity. You can get your copy here at my TpT collection.
This is the Digital Recycling Sorting Activities for Boom Learning. Students can be assigned this activity to be done on tablets or laptops. It is available here at my TpT Boom collection but it is hosted on the Boom Learning platform.
