Throughout the week of April 20-24, the kids will identify what waste can be reused and which can be recycled. They will discuss ways to reduce human paper and water waste. They will collect litter on Earth Day and take a walk to the waste and recycling dumpsters. Children will sort items and determine which is recyclable and what needs to be put into trash.
