10 Tips for Creating a Recycling-Themed Classroom

  1. Use recycled newspaper as background on your bulletin boards.
  2. Cut letters from packaging to make titles for your bulletin boards.
  3. Take pictures of the students holding your recycling bin and use those photos as labels for lockers/cubbies, student work boards, or simply display them in the classroom.
  4. Use recycled cans to hold pencils and other student supplies. Just be sure there are no sharp edges.
  5. Trim your bulletin boards with colorful scraps of recycled paper. 
  6. Add lots of plants around the classroom. Let the kids decorate the pots.
  7. Display a collection of globes around the classroom.
  8. Store thematic units and grouped items in reusable shopping bags.

  10. A low-cost way to enhance your Recycling theme is to set up a display of books that relate to the theme by standing them on a counter or shelf.

Recycling Themed Classroom Pictures

The recycling classroom theme bundle includes BOTH the original version (shown below) and the newly updated version (shown above). In the newer version, we used all new clipart which includes much more diverse characters. Also, we made the entire bundle 100% editable so not only can you customize it with your students’ names and details specific to your classroom, you can now translate EVERYTHING into other languages too. This has long been a request from teachers of ELLs and immersion classrooms. Both versions are available in the Elementary Classroom Decor Collection.
