  1. 1. Team Eye RecycleFinal Presentation <br />“Promoting a vision for <br />a greener world in the <br />eyes of our youth”<br />Kayla Delgado <br />Monica Goncalves <br />Jessica Mercuri <br />Brittany Munroe <br />Thomas Spencer <br />
  2. 2. Team EYE Recycle worked with the third grade class of Kempton Elementary School in New Bedford. <br />We were able to seek help from the school’s principal, Mrs. Cimo, as well as the third grade teacher, Mr. Viera. <br />Additionally, we sought advice from New Bedford’s recycling coordinator, Marissa Perez Dormitzer and Professor Kowalski. <br />Community Partner<br />
  3. 3. Events<br />Book Swap: November 15, 2010<br /> Students had the opportunity to swap books with other classmates in the classroom. This activity represented the “reuse” part of recycling.<br />Prior to the book swap, we presented a lesson to them regarding recycling, reusing, and reducing in the community.<br />
  4. 4. Events<br />Remaining books from the book swap were donated to the Reading Tree Organization. Team members brought books to a donation bin at the Dartmouth Southworth Library located in South Dartmouth.<br />
  5. 5. Events<br />Recycle Fest: November 17, 2010<br /> Students participated in a number of activities and games that were recycled base. Games included Toss for Points, Bottle Bowling, Recycle Relay, and Recycle Jeopardy. All materials were made of recyclable or reusable material. <br />

  7. 7. Watch This!<br />
  8. 8. Through our actions, Mr. Viera’s 3rd grade class decided to do their own book swap involving the whole school, which will teach all the students how to re-use. <br />Community Involvement<br />
  9. 9. A photographer from the Standard Times in New Bedford took pictures of us creating the games for Recycle Fest. An article was then released in the paper about our team and mission. <br />They returned on <br />November 17, 2010 to <br />take photographs of <br />Recycle Fest.<br />Community Involvement<br />
  10. 10. Recycling Awareness <br />As a team, we didn’t want to come into this class and just teach the students about recycling.<br /> <br />We wanted the students to take something away from what we were doing. The best way to do so was to make our events fun and memorable.<br /> <br />
  11. 11. We also had the Standard Times do an article about our project, and then they did a follow up when we had our actual Recycle Fest.<br />Recycling Awareness<br />
  12. 12. We made it a point to teach the third grade students about all aspects of recycling for our lesson plan.<br /> <br />We really focused on the Reuse part of recycling.<br />The book swap gave the students a better understanding on how things they own already can be reused.<br /> <br />They were able to see how although a book may be old to them; it was new to someone else in the class.<br /> <br />The Recycling Jeopardy Game was a way for students to review recycling facts they learned from our lesson plan.<br />Education<br />
  13. 13. Our goal was to make a lasting impression.<br /> <br />We made sure the book swap and Recycle Fest were fun for the students and it was something they would remember.<br /> <br />Books the students did not want after the book swap were given to us so that we could donate them to the community.<br /> <br />Students brought in recyclables (cans and bottles) for us to recycle for them.<br /> <br />Since they had so much fun with our bowling game, we left it with the class.<br /> <br />They also decided to have a second book swap at the end of the month on their own time.<br />Behavior<br />
  14. 14. Sustainability is the ability for something to be sustained for an indefinite period without damaging the environment, or without depleting a resource; renewable<br />Re-used all game materials <br />Allowed students to keep <br /> bottle bowling <br />Taught students <br /> sustainable actions <br />Students donated books <br /> for the future use of other <br /> children <br />(<br />Sustainability<br />
  15. 15. Teamwork<br />In the beginning, our team was somewhat distant from each other, just because we didn’t know each other very well. As time went on, and we did more teambuilding activities in class, trust developed.<br />Trying to come up with creative ideas as a team took a lot of brainstorming, as well as failed attempts. Even though we had problems, we ended up coming together and had individual ideas brought into one.<br />
  16. 16. We put in so much effort to make the kids happy. That was our main motivation. It didn’t matter that the kids were happy every time we walked into the room, we felt we needed to do the best possible.<br />Teamwork<br />
