Recycling & Sustainability
It’s important to establish good, sustainable habits at a young age so we can be more responsible members of the community. Our recent series of Earth Day lesson plans presented reasonable steps we can all take to reduce unnecessary waste and protect our environment.
While we typically think of recycling when we think of ways to help the environment, that’s actually the last step we should consider in the waste hierarchy of Reduce, Reuse, & Recycle. Before we look to dispose of something, we should first look to reduce the amount of waste we need in the first place, and then look to reuse these items before finally deciding to recycle them.
Just as important as reducing our waste is preserving our precious natural resources. Our lesson on saving water lays out strategies for saving water, arguably our most valuable resource. Students can also learn easy strategies to save electricity and reduce plastic waste.
Gynzy lessons can help kindergarteners learn all types of valuable skills!
Social Emotional Learning
Every student will face stress and conflict in life, and so it’s important that we learn healthy skills and strategies we can use to cope with these stressors. We can also help students avoid conflict in the first place by understanding what is expected of them.
Learning to differentiate between our wants and needs can help us appreciate the things we have. This lesson is complete with activities where students are asked to list out their own personal wants and needs. These activities come with printable worksheets to give students another way to learn!
Conflict resolution skills can help us in many areas of our life. By working with others to solve conflicts, we grow and learn to overcome new challenges. We can also work to avoid unnecessary conflict by displaying responsible classroom behavior, and by respecting the boundaries and wishes of other people.
Gynzy lessons can help young students learn skills they will use throughout their lives!
