Life of a Can is a recycling education program that allows your students to explore this question and many more! Your students will be empowered to make a positive difference in their communities as they explore the never-ending lifecycle of a recycled aluminum can.

Students can be defenders of the planet, just like National Hockey League defenseman Andrew Ference, who highlights the power of recycling in the video, What’s One Can. After viewing the video, your class CAN explore how recycling saves energy, investigate their impact on the environment, and examine the properties and structures of aluminum. Finally, extend the learning at home with a scavenger hunt that illuminates the potential energy saved from aluminum recycling.
