I went to African and brought back a helicopter made of tin cans.
I showed my students and challenged them to make anything they wanted out of recycled materials.
Questions on the sheet:
What materials did you use?
What did you make and why?
Why is it important to reuse recycled materials?
What other things could you do to help the environment?
My students were given a mark on their project for effort and creativity.
They did an oral presentation, which they were marked on as well.
I have now added a similar sheet for a project on simple machines and one for a project on the solar system!
