Recycling Education


Copy of Copy of Untitled

It’s never too early to teach children about taking care of nature and recycling waste.  There are many fun, online recycling games that can be used to teach kids why recycling is so important. With recycling, kids can enjoy learning and accomplish great things for our environment and economy!

Learning good recycling habits starts at home and school. Recycling programs all over the US have posted games and activities for learners making recycling motivational and enjoyable for students. Since recycling is different from city to city, we also include presentations that are specific to the Florence Recycle Center.

Want to take kids recycling to the next level? New technologies provide excellent opportunities that are both entertaining and educational.

These online recycling games will enhance learning and boost awareness for preschool and elementary students.

  • School Yard Recycling  Think quickly as a big pipe spills all kinds of waste onto your screen! Some waste is recyclable, some is compostable, and some is ready for the landfill. Can you sort the waste stream correctly? School Yard Recycling is an exciting online learning game that requires quick reflexes and can be incredibly entertaining for youngsters.
  • Trey’s Green Life  Trey is an environmental activist who takes children through his virtual daily routine and shows them how to stop wasting valuable resources.
  • Recycle Roundup Help clean up the park! Your job is to sort the stuff people throw away and put it in the proper bin. Is it recycling, compost, or trash?
  • NASA’s Climate Kids Recycle This! This game is similar to the first one – an airbrush is used to sort through waste and to send each item in the right bin. The options include glass, paper, plastic, metal and trash.
Recycling Right For Florence Is Key!
