Recycling Club

This year I was in charge of the Recycling Club. Only 4th and 5th graders were allowed to be in it.  In previous years, the students collected all the recycling from the classrooms to be dumped in the big bin outside our school.  This year I wanted them to do more then just that.  So this year along with collecting the recycling we made things out of recycled materials.

Project #1: Birdhouses out of milk cartons from lakeshorelearning

Project #2-Math Power Towers from mrshallfabulousinfourth

Project #3-Sandwich box out of a milk jug     http://www.curbly.com/users/diy-maven/posts/11213

Project #4=Magazine Holders out of cereal boxes

Project #5-Ball and Mitt out of newspapers and a milk jug from lakeshorelearning

I have really enjoyed doing it especially with this group of kids.  I started off with probably 15 kids and now have about 7 or 8 kids who show up for meetings consistently.

I don't know if I will be doing this next school year or not.  We have a lot of clubs at our school for such a small school.  My principal mentioned combining some clubs or getting rid of some.  So we will see.
