Why Recycle Cans? Interactive with Al the Can

This website will teach you about the benefits of recycling cans. The game lives on the Facebook page of our youth-centric mascot “Al the Can,” and you can access it using this link: http://budurl.com/AlTheCanStory

 

The game takes the form of a narrative about the life cycle of a can. Your students will be able to create personalized narratives by using the drop-down menus to fill in the blanks throughout the story, making the activity a more memorable, personal and shareable experience. The facts about cans that are sprinkled between the fill-in-the-blank sections (e.g., "recycling just 50 cans saves enough energy for a 20 minute ride to ___") will educate students and encourage recycling participation while keeping them entertained and engaged.

Think Green Streamer
A new online tool released by the U.S. Department of the Interior allows users to select any major stream and trace it up to its sources or down to its watershed. Streamer is a new way to visualize and understand water flow across America. With Streamer you can explore our Nation's major streams by tracing upstream to their source or downstream to where they empty. In addition to making maps, Streamer creates reports about your stream traces and the places they pass through.
Streamer is fueled by fundamental map data for the United States at one million-scale from the National Atlas.
