MRS. CLARK'S FIRST GRADE CLASS MAKES TREASURES...FROM TRASH

Posted April 23 at 11:10am

Students in Mrs. Clark's class learned valuable lessons just in time for Earth Day.  Children were challenged to construct creative projects by recycling or reusing common household materials.  The students' success was evidenced by their projects.  Projects included a bird feeder, tornado generator, piggy bank, snack robot helper, bug catcher, and a first aid kit, to list just a few.  Students learned how to look at materials destined for the landfill in a new way.  They also learned that there is truth to the saying, "One man's trash is another man's treasure."
