I know you will be busy enjoying your children over the holidays, but I have been inspired by a video. Have a look and hopefully you will be too!
After showing the video this was the class discussion:
Ms. McIntosh: What was that video about?
Aleena: they tried to make worthless things useful.
Norah: Totally amazing! Just amazing. I don’t know if I could make things so complex.
Everyone: I couldn’t.
Medo: Maybe if we had a book to tell us how to do it.
Alek: I made a sled out of trash.
Norah: I made a DS folder from Trash. I used a tissue box.
Michelle: I’m speechless. It’s amazing!
Ms. McIntosh: I think you could make an instrument out of recycled things.
Norah: You could make a guitar out of a tissue box and rubber bands.
Michelle: I made a guitar before.
Aydin: How do you make a guitar?
Aidyn: I wonder if you could.
Alek: I’m not sure, but I think you could.
Medo: It would be easy to make drums. You could use chop sticks, or just play chopsticks.
Norah: You know what would be really easy, you could play the bottle.
So they students are being asked to bring in an instrument to play made of recycled items. Please do not buy anything special. They are being challenged to think creatively. Could you take pictures and send them to me of the process?
We are all very excited about this!
