Caring Together: Activity Stations

In this Bob the Builder(TM)-themed activity, learners explore the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) by rotating through several activity stations. Activity stations may include: packing a lunch in reusable containers; sorting recyclable cans, plastic containers, and newspaper; playing with water in recycled containers and toys; making a collage by reusing magazine pictures; and drawing on both sides of the paper. This activity is featured on page 14 of the "Bob the Builder(TM) — Project: Build It" unit of study.
