Recycling will help our planet. Our students can be a good impact into this practice. This activity will help build awareness of different recyclable materials.

Sort the picture cards below the correct heading. Then, complete the worksheet to continue your studies. Finally, use magazine cutouts or a pencil and colors to create a poster illustrating the kinds of things that can be recycled.
