The DEC has developed a 36-page booklet which contains New York Recycles! lessons and activities for you to share with your students. Download the file "Recycling Lessons and Activities for Students" from the link at the right and make as many copies as you need for your students.

Included in the materials are such lessons as spelling words, math problems, reference and background materials. The activity pages include crossword puzzles and matching games. A certificate can be printed and filled out for each student who completes the lessons.
