Too Good to Throw Away!
Grades: 1st - 2nd & 3rd - 5th
Welcome to Too Good to Throw Away!, a three-part recycling education program designed for 1st-5th grade students to learn about and practice the 3Rs: reduce, reuse, and recycle – and have FUN in the process. The program, which is customized for grades 1-2 and grades 3-5, includes a pre-visit activity, an interactive one-hour classroom presentation, and two post-visit activities, providing practical knowledge and skills that will help students make intelligent decisions now and in the future. Each student receives a pencil made from recycled paper at the end of the classroom presentation. The presentation and related activities are aligned with ADE standards. Too Good to Throw Away! is sponsored by City of Tucson Environmental Services and offered free of charge to schools located within Tucson city limits.
We’re excited to introduce a NEW 6-minute pre-visit video for 1st - 5th graders!
It is critical to show this video before your classroom presentation, so that students are prepared with the necessary vocabulary and content.
