Recycle What?

Mrs. Skolaris' class has been working on researching how various things are recycled as Earth Day approaches on April 22nd. Each student chose a topic to find out how it was recycled and what types of items it was made into using books and online resources like Webpath Express and NetTrekker. This included paper, cans, plastic bottles, computers, cars, and more. Now, they are working to create commercials about each topic to run in the school. They are having a last working on the commercials and got some good exposure to research skills including how important it is to have questions about your topic to answer, not just a vague topic. Using the Big 6 steps, defining your task and questions is the first step and is invaluable. We can't wait to see how the commercials turn out!
