It’s Water-Wise Wednesday with Frannie the Fish {America Recycles Day}

November 15, 2015 is America Recycles Day!

Frannie has taken the pledge to recycle more in honor of Keep America Beautiful's recycling initiative and has found a recycling event to participate in this coming Sunday!  Find an event near you to participate in!  America Recycles Day happens every year and helps educate people about recycling and promotes recycling all across the country.

Frannie found a fun activity to do in honor of America Recycles Day.  You can do it too!  The goal of the activity is to match the correct fun fact with the corresponding recyclable product.

Frannie printed off the instructions for this activity and gathered the supplies she needs, including:
  • An aluminum soda can
  • A glass bottle
  • A piece of paper
  • A plastic bottle
  • A steel food can
  • Scissors

Follow these steps with Frannie to do this activity!
1.  Print the fun facts from the website above (and the images of the items if you don't have the actual items).  Cut out the fun facts.

2.  Try to match up the correct fun fact with the corresponding item!

3.   Use the last page of the activity guide to see what the correct answers are.  Are you surprised by any of the facts?

Don't forget to recycle!

Share what you will be doing on America Recycles Day and you could be featured on Frannie's blog!
