PEGS North designed a Trashman Trash Can after the the Pacman arcade game from the 1980s! Students brainstormed ideas, researched online and created this project during our STEM time. The Trashman Trash Can has lights for the Pacman-inspired screen. In addition, as people throw trash away, the trashcan sings the "Celebration" song by 'Kool and the Gang'.
Third through fifth grade.
These students decided to create a minion by using paint and paper.
Students decorated a trash can to represent our classroom theme of MonSTARS. They decorated a trash can like the Monsters Inc. character Mike Wazowski. The created a sign that states, "Keep your eye on keeping the world clean or I will come to your closet tonight!".
Students used Angry Bird to get their message across that it is not good to litter because it can kill a critter! Students used a 30 gallon trash can with a wooden stick to hold open the lid so it would be easier for all students to get their trash in. They used recycle cardboard to build the bird along with red, white,black and orange paper, cotton balls, and recycled black yarn to decorate the bird.
Students created the Slop Shop! They used recycled cardboard to build the Slop Shop to stand beside the trash can. The trash can has white paper wrapped around it with playful pigs for decoration. Students placed a large pig holding a spoon inside the garbage can so students within the school can feed the pig their "slop". Students had fun creating this Slop Shop and hope to continue encouraging other to pick up trash!
My homeroom wanted to use a straw to give the trash can a chute to throw in the trash. Students thought if it was kind of fun, more students might pitch in trash. Students used a 30 gallon trash can, recycled card board for the top, along with white paper for the entire trash can, cotton balls and recycled paper pieces for sprinkles. Sudents really had a lot of fun with this project and can't wait to see how much trash they are able to collect!
Some third grade students came together to create this fun trash can for our school's lobby. Several students have already been found searching the halls for litter just so they could use this can! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
The students pick up trash around the school building and wanted to decorate the trash cans to encourage other students to keep the school clean.
The girl's theme was inspired by a member of the troop who plays hockey and her enthusiasum for the sport is contagious. Naturally we had to show our support for the St. Louis Blues. The girls upcycled a t-shirt for the St. Louis Blues logo, they repurposed a tabletop hockey game & used hockey pucks for Os. You can find the No MOre Trash logo on a hockey puck being shot into the goal & on top of the trash can. The girls plan to continue to spread their message by having a trash pick up event at school with other Girl Scout troops.
