ReCreate's hour-long program is an educational presentation and hands-on art project, where the ReCreate team brings the field-trip to your school - arriving in an over sized truck, built out as an art-mobile filled with art supplies.
Our presentation includes a discussion designed to increase the students’ awareness of solid waste issues, the importance of waste reduction and reuse, and how recycling happens in our region. Topics include:
- Trash - what's the big deal?
- Where is our "away" and how is our trash handled once it gets there?
- What can you do make less trash and becoming an environmental super-hero
Students select and create a one of a kind art project from our vast selection of art kits, made from our reuse materials. Students are encouraged to creatively reuse items to make unique work of art that is theirs to keep.
This program meets California Common Core standards for art, science and social studies.
We can accommodate four classes per day at a school. To minimize the environmental impact of driving the vehicle to your location, a minimum of three and maximum of four classes from the same school should be reserved for the same day.
If you are from a different school in our region, we can visit you school, on a fee for service arrangement. For more information about ReCreate making a hands-on presentation at your school, email us at email@example.com.
For the 2013/2014 school year, we are contracted with Sacramento County and Western Placer Waste Management Authority to provide our program to a certain number of classes 2nd through 4th grade classes (with 3rd grade classes getting priority for booking) in their respective service areas, at no cost to the schools.
