April is the month in which we celebrate Earth Day (April 22nd) and it is a great time to discuss recycling and reducing our footprint on the planet. Discovery Education has partnered with Novelis to bring students and educators the Life of a Can program. This elementary recycling program will help students to be empowered to make a positive difference in their communities as they explore the never-ending lifecycle of a recycled aluminum can.

TRY THIS PROGRAM AND SHARE (And take your students’ experience global!) Do you enjoy the activities and resources available on the site?  Is Life of a Can helping to enrich your classroom experience?  If so, we want to hear from you!  If you would be willing to share your story as part of an ongoing effort to highlight the program, please reach out to Teri Hatch, Discovery Education, at teri_hatch@discovery.com.
