Building and Designing with Recycled Materials

I often let my students build with pattern tiles if they finish their work early. This year, after having collected lots and lots of cool marker caps, glue caps, and tape spools, the students and I decided that building structures and creating designs with these colorful and diverse caps would be a fun GREEN option!

The students thoroughly enjoy doing this when they get the time. If you don't have it in your budget to purchase pattern tiles, start saving marker and glue caps! I think this green option is even better than the original!
