Classrooms are divided into groups of 3 or 4 and given a shoe box full of recycled materials. As a team they must create a mobile and a sculpture, as well as cover the shoe box with images reflecting their groups “theme”, whether it’s animals, nature, space, etc. Within three steps, each student in each group should have collaborated with their group and individually worked on each piece. Recycling and repurposing materials are emphasized.
