From turning off lights in the classroom to students riding their bike to school, there are ‘going green’ initiatives that can work for everyone. This post includes 4 exciting ‘going green’ projects k-12 schools can try throughout the school year.1. Start a Student-Run Recycling Club
First, educate students, teachers and staff members what materials can and cannot be recycled. Then, ensure each classroom, copy room and office has at least one recycling bin in it. Have students volunteer to collect and empty the recycling bins in specific rooms.
3. Take an Environmentally Informative Field Trip
Field trips are another great way to help students become more environmentally conscious. Some environmentally informative field trip ideas could include:
- Local Landfill
- Recycling Center
- Organic Farm
- Alternative Energy Plant
