Student Request: Recycle Project Day

This is always a great day when we get creative and make things out of recyclable materials!  We talked about the Design thinking process.  First, we looked at what materials were available to us.  Then we thought about something that could be made that is “useful.”  This parameter is very open ended because what is useful to you can be different to what is useful to me!  Then the kiddos designed, created, redesigned, recreated and completed lots of fun projects such as a sling-shot, a house, a mini-basketball court, a desk organizer, and a jewelry organizer!  What fun!  And then outside for a little hide-n-seek and fun at the play lot.
