Authors: A. Montserrat Rull, G. Font Cunill

General Objectives:

  • Acquiring routines in the children’s day-to-day life
  • Raise awareness of the need to reuse, reduce and recycle
  • Know the concepts of the 3Rs: reduce, recycle and reuse
  • Develop a responsible attitude
  • Practice artistic skills 

Intended learning outcomes

The child will be able to:

  • Become aware of the importance of recycling, reducing and reusing
  • Give examples of each one
  • Acquire healthy habits
  • Begin to understand the effect of human actions on the planet
  • Develop the oral communicative competence
  • Incorporate the routines that support the 3Re project
  • Develop artistic skills


Initial – A visual rubric on daily habits will be shared, including:

  1. We wake up: we wash our faces, have breakfast, clean our teeth
  2. At school: we share, we order, we reuse.
  3. We go out to the yard: we wash our hands, we share, we reuse, we recycle.

Continuous – In the development of each resource, the teaching-learning process of each child will be evaluated from the data collection of their interventions, contributions and actions.  The subject is developed in each resource in a specific way.

Final Evaluation – As a final evaluation, at the end of the activities, there will be an assembly where the boys and girls will share their ideas about the 3Rs. This assembly will be recorded on video for later evaluation.

Teaching methodologies

  1. The class group will be divided into groups of four or five people dressed in colors: the yellow group (plastic), blue group (paper), brown group (organic), grey group (waste), green group (glass). It can also be made with bracelets of different colours.
  2. It is proposed to the children to play to go shopping, cook, and pick up the kitchen, using products’ packages that they have brought from home and toys that represent the various products and utensils. 
  3. When they have finished the game we will ask ourselves: What do we do with what we have left over and with the packages/containers we have used?
  4. We will put all the objects in the center of the space and we will sit by groups of colors. In turns, students must deposit the objects in the indicated recycling group.
  5. At the end we can go outside and perform the action of recycling in the containers, in groups, in an active and real way.
  6. To enhance vocal and corporal expression we will work two songs, to become aware of the importance of ordering, through singing and action; and to express in a corporal way the benefits of recycling:
