Be prepared for Earth Day this year with a fun and interactive project that gets your students thinking about recycling while exercising their creative muscles at the same time!
Students will brainstorm types of materials that can be recycled, can't be recycled, and materials that can be reused. They will use this list to help them search their homes for recyclable goods. (Make sure they wash out those coke cans first!)
As a group, they will sift through materials brought from home to create a statue of something that recycles to help the earth. This could be a robot, a machine, anything!
