Here are a few tips to make the Elmer's Glue Crew Recycling Program® more fun, more interactive and more successful for your classroom and your school:
Feel free to let other teachers know that they can include their glue bottles and glue sticks in your collection.
Use the projects we've provided under the Classroom Resources page to help teach your students about recycling.
Have a contest to see who can collect the most empty Elmer's glue bottles and glue sticks from other students in the building or bring the most from home.
Coordinate a field trip to a local recycling facility to learn about the process of recycling.
Teach your students ways to be "earth friendly" – riding their bikes, recycling at home, ask parents to use paper instead of plastic at the grocery store or using leftover products for other things (pop bottle bottoms for planters).
Assign a new "Recycling Coordinator" each month to help you prepare/lead the class project, wash out bottles and sticks and make a tally of how many they have recycled so far.
