Lapbooking printables - garbage/trash

DD (3 1/2) has expressed curiosity about where our trash goes, so I've checked out a couple library books, and we're planning to take her on a short tour of the local recycling dropoff center as well as driving by the local landfill to let her see the mountain that results from all the individual bags of trash.  I'm hoping to do something like a lapbook so we can put a minibook, a coloring page and I don't know what else together for her to look back at.  However, I'm having trouble finding printables online.  Can anyone suggest some?

Thanks!!

What is a lapbook?  You mean like a bunch of activities and worksheets that you bind together to show progress?

We just completed our first lapbook, so I'm not an expert.  Here is Kickbuttmama's excellent explanation - Lapbooking is a collection of worksheets, flapbooks, whatever - kind of like a scrapbook you and your child puts together on the subject they learned about.

Here's our first attempt at lapbooking

Butterfly sequencing cards and a book of butterfly food sources

Butterfly part identification, dot to dot and tracing

Monarch butterfly migration route

A book on the Life Cycle of a Butterfly and an accordion fold book of predators

I'd say try currclick.com and do a search on "garbage" or "recycling" and see what comes up.

One of LO's favorite books is Smash that Trash. The corresponding website has some freebies that may help. www.trucktown.com
