3R's of the Common Core - A Teacher's Resource Guide to Solid Waste & Recycling

NRRA’s School Recycling Club is pleased to offer our school curriculum 3R’s of the Common Core: A Teacher’s Resource Guide to Solid Waste and Recycling .

The former Association of Vermont Recyclers (AVR), a leader in Vermont recycling education programs, originally created this publication 25 years ago. In 2012, the Club assumed ownership of AVR’s school resources and materials. In 2015, NRRA received funding from a USDA Rural Development grant program to update this outstanding curriculum.  It now aligns with the National Common Core standards and is non-state specific.  Most of the lessons were revised and the Information and Resources sections upgraded, while upholding the original concepts and objectives.

3R's of the Common Core provides teachers with a relevant curriculum complete with a wide range of lessons and activities that offer students concepts, knowledge and understanding of environmental problems and possible solutions.

Lessons and Common Core Alignments are separated by grades as follows: K-3, 4-6, 7-8 and 9-12.
