Metro preschool kit options:

Papermaking kits.
They have already been reserved the week of May 9th. However, but if you set a date in another week it might be available.  There are 2 kits and the loan period is 2 weeks. Each kit brings about 12 screens, a blender, sponges, and instructions. Those expecting a large group of students can reserve both kits.

Resource Connections kit.
Because it was designed for educators working with grades 1-3, some modifications would likely have to be made by preschool educators. The kit contains a lesson plan and materials to do the following:

  • Review where our waste goes and what happens to it at the landfill
  • Review the 3 “R”s and generate various examples for each “R”
  • Discuss natural resources, with examples of products that come from them
  • Play memory card game (match product with natural resource it came from)
  • Identify ways to use less natural resources by practicing the 3 “R”s

You can pick them up at 600 NE Grand Avenue at any time during hours (8 am -  5 pm Monday-Friday).
