Earth Month: Modeling Sustainability Mindset in the Classroom

Part of our job as teachers is to empower our students to become conscientious global citizens. Lessons, activities, and projects highlighting environmental issues are solid ways to build the critical-thinking and problem-solving skills and empathy kids will need to tackle these problems as adults.

Modeling sustainability in the classroom is another way to teach your students to reduce, reuse, and recycle. This Earth Month, make a commitment to reducing your own classroom waste with cost-efficient, reusable, magnetic teaching materials such as the bestsellers below:

Magnetic Dry-Erase Boards

Cut down on paper waste and make lessons way more fun, with markers and magnets (sold separately)!

When students are done, simply wipe the boards clean and set them aside for next time. Plus, they’re double-sided!

Choose from slim and durable sets with blank/blank or ruled/blank sides. MSRP $21.99 (5 double-sided blank boards); $24.99 (5 double-sided ruled/blank boards).

Adhesive Magnet Tape in DispenserUntitled design (33)

Skip the cellophane and masking tape–go for Magnet Tape instead!

Easily hang papers, artwork, and photographs with this lightweight Magnet Tape in a handy dispenser including a built-in, serrated cutter.

Simply adhere a piece of magnetic tape to your students’ work (or to any paper or photo) and attach to your magnetic-receptive whiteboard, fridge, filing cabinet, or steel door frame.

You can also reposition the paper/photo as you wish. No need to reapply, as you’d have to do with cellophane or masking tape!

Untitled design (37)And guess what? Our Magnet Tape has the unique ability to also stick to itself.

That means you can turn even non-magnetic surfaces into displays (think cupboard doors, desk fronts, plastic bins, smooth walls, and wooden doors)!

First, place a second piece of Magnet Tape on the non-magnetic surface.

Then, hold the paper/photo (to which you already applied a piece of Magnet Tape) up to the piece of Magnet Tape previously applied to the non-magnetic surface. Your paper/photo will stick!

Adhesive on one side and magnetic on the other, tape measures .75” wide and 25’ long. MSRP $8.50.
