Hi Idalli!

We take the tops of pop cans and save them and we also take our wire and save it in a big bag! At my house, we have some scrap metal that I will collect to weigh for our project.

Dear Joel,
You were talking about how I make bottle fish. All you do is get a bottle, cut the bottom off, and you staple the two parts of the bottom, and you paint it. Then it looks like a fish. When do you go skiing? I will pick up trash when I go to the woods someday. I like Sonic the Hedgehog stuff. I live in Craig, Colorado. There's lots of restaurants. I have a collection of rocks. Sometimes I go to Spirit Pass, a store in the mall, to get new rocks.
