Let your kids experience the scientific process, ecology and environmental degradation with a year’s worth of activities using recycled materials.  You can’t top it for ease and cost since all activities are housed in 2-liter soda bottles.

Bottle Biology's year's worth of activities, designed to be built and carried out inside 2 liter soda bottles, use easy-to-find recycled materials to teach students about ecology, environmental degradation, and the scientific process. Students design and implement their own experiments, and the activities provide guidance while leaving ample room for extensions. Storage space and prep time are required, and group leaders will need to adjust some activities for younger students.
