E1 Recycled Art Project

IMG_3788

E1’s recycled bottle cap project ready to be hung on the playground fence!

A group of teachers and parents on the Playground Committee were tasked with working out Phase I of the natural playscape at school.  Their plan for dressing up the playground fence?  Each classroom was asked to create a piece of recycled art!

Miss Sam’s E1 classroom started collecting plastic caps and lids that normally would be discarded in the trash.  One student’s grandpa, Terry Angst, volunteered to donate wood, cut the pieces, and sand them.

E1 student, Wylie, and her mom painted the flower. Then it was assembled at school and ready for decorating!

April 30th presented a beautiful sunny afternoon, so the entire classroom came outside for silent reading.  Students worked in groups of three placing two caps each on the large tulip.  Caps were screwed in place, and we are all really pleased with the outcome!

Hanging is set for this week, and check-out all the work that has been done outside from our playground/outdoor work day here!  Below are some pictures from the E1 project day.
