The learner creates new ideas and information using what has been previously learned. They will be able to invent their own ideas to recycle tin cans, newspapers, glass bottles, plastic and paper.
STUDENT CENTERED APPROACH
Techniques /Modes Observing and monitoring skills Allowing students to brainstorm ways they are going to do things differently and come up with one goal to work on (i.e have a recycle bin next to the garbage bin in the classroom) The students will be in charge of creating a sign, poster or a flyer to tell others about recycling. Giving Direction Skills Using board to gather ideas, visual aids, activities and examples. Questioning Skills Having students reflect over the knowledge they have gained and ask them questions to get them think critically. Encouraging Skills Show and tell activity, role play, presentations and songs on recycling. Intervening Skills Moving around the class. Modeling critical and creative thinking throughout the unit.

What will happen if we don’t recycle? What are the advantages of recycling and how it has a positive impact on our environment? Name some recyclables?
Draw or paste pictures of recyclables. Recycle paper at home with the help of your mother following the instructions given in the book.
Challenges Students may find difficulty while making materials. Recycling paper would be difficult in class. Non-availability of Multimedia. Class can become messy while doing an art activity. Solutions I will divide them into groups and assist them frequently in designing new products. I will make them understand the process of recycling paper in class. They will try it at home with their mothers following the instructions given in book. Take students to the computer lab,arrange a projector system for them and show them a video on recycling. Students will be told to clean up their stuff on their own, hence connecting it to the real life, they will learn how to “reduce” waste.
Project based learning is a student centered, instructional model. Project based approaches engage students in deeper content area, knowledge and develop 21 st century skills. Such as Collaboration Problem solving Critical thinking.
