Meet Recycle Rex, the California Energy Commission’s spokesdinosaur, and your companion in the 26 page booklet of fun available on their website.
Starting with a crossword puzzle about the reasons to recycle, the booklet offers a variety of fun educational games. Following the crossword is a coloring page with a character copyrighted to Disney (it is California, after all!).
A large recycling word search puzzle has 22 columns and 23 rows. A creative word search in a bottle is a few pages later, with a list of words that are things that can be reused. The tree one is also good.
The remaining games include a maze and a hidden symbol. Among the information presented on other pages is a feature about recycling aluminum cans. Did you know that one recycled aluminum can saves enough energy to run a TV for 3 hours?
Have fun with the booklet. And remember, print individual pages on recycled paper, and recycle them when you’re finished with them!
