A fun activity for the classroom converts plastic bottles into a recycled reef and helps students to learn about cleaning up the oceans and protecting the earth. Have students bring in lots of plastic bottles and encourage different shapes and thicknesses of plastic. Rinse out the insides and peel off labels first.
