America Recycles Day is observed each year on November 15. Since it began in 1997, millions of people have learned how recycling can help save energy, natural resources, and precious land that otherwise might have been used to bury solid waste. In addition to encouraging Americans to recycle, the America Recycles Day national organization works hard to encourage people to buy recycled products. Visit America Recycles Day on the Internet to learn how you can become involved in this national event. With permission from Dale Hubert, creator and moderator of the Flat Stanley Project, we are pleased to offer some special Flat Stanley art activities that are designed to reuse materials.

Science shows time and time again that music has a powerful ability to enhance brain development and improve learning skills. For example, in 2006 Science Daily reported on a Canadian based study that revealed that children trained in music also had better memory skills in areas including "literacy, verbal memory, visiospatial processing, mathematics and IQ." In short, integrating music throughout the school day by integrating it better into classroom learning activities takes advantage of how music affects the learning progress of students. Take Advantage of the Fact that Music Affects Learning Any teacher that acknowledges the tremendous boost for learning that music can accomplish in the classroom already has a fair number of educational freeware resources at their disposal for integrating musical training into classroom subjects beyond a single class devoted only to music.
