From Harford County Public Schools:
Fourth grade students at William S. James Elementary School participated in a mini-science fair during the month of October. The students were in a unit of study titled, Natural Resources and Nature’s Cycles. They were studying reducing, reusing and recycling and were encouraged to find a used item within their households to be reused in a new way. The students displayed their reused projects in the cafeteria where parents, teachers and other students had the opportunity to visit and learn about these creative ideas. The project concept was borrowed from Forest Hill Elementary School teacher Kristen Underwood.
Alexa Warren created “Kool Lunch Bags” using juice bags, glue and Velcro.
Mary Crue created a watering can out of a recycled gallon milk jug. She poked holes in the lid for the water to be able to come out.
Keyon Brown made a raincatcher out of an empty Sunny D bottle, soda bottle, pictures and old cardboard boxes.
Shane Ross created a pencil holder made entirely out of glue and rolled magazine pages.
