Turn Plastic Bottles into Magical Learning!

There is never an excuse for throwing away plastic bottles because there is always a reason to use them in your classroom. There are so many fantastic resources out there by super creative individuals for turning bottles into educational tools, and in this post I will try to touch on as many as I know about. So, peruse the ideas below and start saving your bottles!


 
DISCOVERY BOTTLES ARE THE BOMB!
So much fun! All you need are bottles some kind of fun material (rice, pom-poms, sprinkles, etc.). I got my start from Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits who has the mother of all posts on discovery bottles. You'll need to scroll down to see the post because I'm having issues with the actual post showing up.

  1. Seriously the Quiet spray and the Brain Sprinkles are the best! Got to see if I can make one of these today.
