Junk Sculpture Recycling Craft ActivityBy Teachers.Net News Desk
By Nancy Mead
Every year for Earth Day, I have my grade two students save their “garbage” and bring it to school. The directions are to bring in CLEAN, LIGHTWEIGHT items that would normally be thrown in the garbage. Then on Earth Day we use a hot glue gun and make a “Junk Sculpture.” We talk about how we reuse and recycle things to help conserve our resources. The kids have made some wonderful sculptures.
