Ezard Elementary School in Conway Missouri - The 6th grade class has been learning about "going green."
They've talked about the environment, recycling and using items in unusual ways.
Their latest assignment? Trash Art.
- Use at least four items/things from around the home that otherwise would be thrown away.
- Think "outside the box"
- Try to avoid paint.
This morning, boxes, tin foil, tooth picks, soup cans and straws invaded the upper hall. The creativity of the class was impressive!
How can you re-use items that would other wise end up in the trash bin?
My daughter, Ashley, used a variety of items in her "Old McDonald's Farm" including: toothpicks, a cracker box, straws, a paper bag, wrapping paper, a potato chip container, a cup and, to hold the fence up - her used bubble gum!
Chelsey used a Sunny D bottle to make her Christmas Tree!
Karissa used bottle lids, a toilet paper roll and a make up case in her master piece.
Josie used pencils, soup cans and a cereal box.
More Trash to Treasure!
