Students at Hoff-Barthelson Preschool learned about the 3 Rs - reduce, reuse, and recycle - by creating a scene from The Nutcracker. Clean garbage that were destined for the trash found a new use in another form. A brown shipping box became the living room. Paper towel rolls and green ribbon turned into trees. Plastic Easter eggs were transformed into mice. Students also learned the story of The Nutcracker by listening to the music and hearing the story read aloud during story time. Hoff-Barthelson Preschool does a recycling project every year.
