Today’s Learning

The topic of today’s learning is Improving our Environment. It was contributed by Naomi.

Recycling has become part of our daily routine. We recycle paper, cans and plastics by dropping them in our household bin. Here in Arlington County, it takes a bit more effort to recycle other materials, but it’s worth it!
