Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

LauraAll Posts, Kindergarten

This morning, we enjoyed a field trip to the Recycling Center to compliment our lessons about God’s creation and good stewardship.

We saw (and smelled) garbage being mashed by big, loud trucks; watched men, trucks, and conveyor belts sort tons and tons of cardboard boxes, plastics, and glass; saw huge blocks of crushed bottles, cans, and paper; danced to Jack Johnson’s “3Rs”; and weighed our whole group on the truck scale (1500 pounds of homeschool goodness + strollers and umbrellas).

Check it out:

the clothes on these maniquins and the cloth on Lia’s chair were made from recycled soda bottles!
