Hi, Teaching Friends!
It’s an end of year ritual in most classrooms – go through those bins of markers and sort the good ones from those that have nothing left to give. You know the ones I mean: Palest Purple, Been-around-too-long Blue, Seen better days Scarlet, …
I don’t know about you, but to me it seems kind of sad to just throw piles of markers in the garbage. I mean, isn’t there a way to recycle them?
It turns out that the answer is YES!
Head over to this post to find out about Crayola’s super simple recycling program. It’s a great end of year project that’s productive and doable by students of any grade!
