NRRA School Recycling Club Free SHIP Lessons (Supporting Home Instruction Program)

SHIP Lessons (Supporting Home Instruction Plan)

NRRA's School Recycling Club has pivoted their on-site classroom workshops and school-wide technical assistance programs to remote workshops and created nine free lesson plans from NRRA's school recycling curricula  in response to COVID-19.

Nine lessons from NRRA's nationally recognized curricula (3R's of the Common Core: Use it Up, Wear it Out, Make it Do, or Do Without and Teaching Toxics : Creating Solutions to Household Pollution) were broken out for age groups K-3, 4-6, 7-8 and 9-12. Each lesson plan packet includes a video introduction aligned with each packet theme, the Common Core Matrix (for teachers), a NRRA curricula lesson,  a craft or activity and a link foradditional sources. 

Lessons include: Recycling and Composting; Reuse and Repackaging; and Hazardous Homes.  The goal is to keep recycling education alive both in the home and in schools. A very special thanks to New Hampshire the Beautiful for supporting these free SHIP lessons! The NRRA School Recycling Club builds community action by directing students, teachers, schools and communities to a clear understanding of pertinent solid and hazardous waste issues and supporting sustainable waste reduction programs.
