The mission in our classroom last year was to become an eco-friendly art studio; this year, we continue on our quest! We love our planet, and want to take care of it by causing less waste and being more responsible with our materials! This is a learning process; we will still have to break a lot of old habits. We will continue to work with recycled and reclaimed materials in a variety of ways as a part of every unit this year. Can't wait to share our ideas and efforts with you! Go GREEN!

Raka in the fifth grade brought in this awesome sculpture that he made at home with recycled materials. Not only does his robot look super cool, it looks super friendly, too! He used an egg carton for a body, water bottles for legs, a Sprite box for the arms, hands, and feet,
and a Styrofoam to-go box and bottle caps for the head! He used clear packing tape to securely join his robot together.
