Recycling Center Field Trip

Our homeschool group went on a field trip to learn about recycling.  We learned about the centers in the area and the types of recyclable materials they take.

We all played a fun game of Left and Right.  The hostess passed out various items for each of us to hold.  As she read a story on recycling, we had to pass our items either to the left or right when we heard those words.  At the end, everyone got to keep the item they were left holding.

After the game, we watched a video on recycling and the tools and machines used in the process.

The final part of the field trip was to look at a composting site and why composting is important.

The children learned many new things on this trip.
