We will watch Magic School Bus’ Holiday Special: RecyclingIt's the last day of school before the winter holidays and Wanda plans to see the Nutcracker ballet. But during a trip to a recycling plant that belongs to Murph (Dolly Parton), the toy soldier she needs to get into the theater accidentally gets recycled! Devastated, Wanda wishes for a world without recycling. Ms. Frizzle activates the bus's un-recycler, taking the class and Murph on a song-filled field trip. The importance of recycling hits home when the bus's magic unrecycles everything in Walkerville — including the bus itself, as it too was made from recycled objects! Will the kids find a way to reconstruct the bus in time for Wanda to get back to see the Nutcracker?
Now that we understand what materials or products can be recycled, it is up to you to bring in these items (cans, bottles, newspaper) over the next week.

Problem # 2
Do we have enough bottles to make a jacket?
How about 2 jackets?
