Patrons learn about different types of plastic and identify them in a mystery bag, while exploring the importance of recycling!
|Hints for uses in your library||For a one-time activity, provide all of the plastic materials yourself rather than have patrons bring in their own from home. This could also be a fun activity to do combined with a field trip to your local recycling center|
