EcoKids has partnered with Call2Recycle to develop a new classroom activity. The EcoKids Battery Busters Audit is an activity for students in grades K-8 to learn about the batteries in their home and school, the environmental impacts of batteries, and how to safely recycle dead batteries.
We are asking students to conduct a battery audit of their home
to find out how many batteries are in their home, what kinds of batteries are used,
and what devices use them.
Students and teachers can then discuss a series of
follow-up questions to help them brainstorm about some of the ways they can
reduce their environmental footprint and reduce the number of batteries they
Following the Audit, classes will have an
opportunity to enter a draw for a chance to win
a Free Pizza Lunch and an EcoKids Classroom Kit! Audit
