Grade 3 Visits The CT Recycle Museum!

Our class visited the garbage museum! We learned where the trash goes. We learned that plastic can be made into coats and jackets. Don’t worry; it gets cleaned. It was really interesting. We even saw a tipping truck tip on the tipping floor 2 times! A tipping truck is a truck that pushes the garbage out of the truck by lifting the back of the truck up using gravity pull it down on to the tipping floor. The tipping floor is the floor were the tipping trucks tip the garbage and the garbage gets dumped.The trip was EXCITING! In the end we all got to make kissing frogs out of recycled materials. It was fun! I can’t wait for another class to visit the garbage museum!

Remember to recycle your Thanksgiving paper and cardboard packaging!
