class and Mrs. Pipkin's Class are working on a crayon recycling project with
Crayola ColorCycle. Crayola ColorCycle is a three step recycling process that
focuses on awareness, setting up a collection station for used markers, and
then packing the markers to be shipped off to be recycled.
Crayola and schools across North America are banding together to help kids understand the importance of their role in protecting the environment. That’s why we launched Crayola ColorCycle. Through this initiative, students in K-12 schools across the continental United States and parts of Canada can collect and repurpose used Crayola markers.
ColorCycle is also a great opportunity for teachers and their
students to explore eco-friendly practices. Specially developed standards-based
lesson plans are available to enrich instruction and promote lively class
The 4th grade students'
goal is to reduce plastic in the oceans and minimize exposure to seal
life. Stay tuned for details on how to help and where to turn
in your used markers!
