Third grade just finished one of the coolest projects of the entire year. Continuing our effort to be green this year, we made bowls out of magazine pages! Each student rolled page after page around a chip board strip. The individual pages were taped together and rolled into one giant spiral. The bottom was then pushed down and the entire bowl was given a coat of clear medium to give it strength. We had great discussions of how artists can use recycled materials. It must have been a great project because other grade levels are begging me to let them do this project, too!
