Activity #9: Culminating Discussion & Reflection Paragraph (60 min)

“Are there other ways we can make choices to be sustainable in our every day life?”

Write a reflection paragraph about recycling, why it is important and how it leads to a future of living sustainably with your Earth.

Use a thinking map to brainstorm ideas. Partner children or have them jot ideas down on their own thinking map as you have the class help you complete yours.

Then model how ideas are formed into complete sentences on lined paper. Remove your writing from sight before children begin their own.
