  1. Love the can recycling! I found out about Terracycle from you, and I can’t wait to add this to my list of recycling and upcycling projects that have led students to call me the “chip bag freak!”

  2. Wow! I can’t believe all the great stuff you have to offer! Love the can recycling. Awesome resources and ideas that I can also tweak for more ideas. Thanks for such a great site!

  3. Okay, just the name Pseudonymous Bosch is a classroom conversation starter! Pseudonym and anonymous – why would an author choose a name like that? And if he/she is that creative in the naming, what in the world will the stories be like??? Coincidentally, I just discovered the word “portmanteau” last week….I think I want to read these, but I could share them with the kids, too. 🙂

  4. Love the can recycling. It is so important to our environment. I will pass this information along to our school recycling representatives.

  5. I want to share the Great American Can Roundup with my students. Its such a shame wee have become such a disposable society. I have recycled since I was about 7.

  6. I’m not sure why but this weblog is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end?
