Sea Less Trash in the Ocean No Mo Trash Side Clown Fish JellyFish School of Fish Recycled Art

Peter, Hailey, and Aidan came up with this idea on their own. Their idea was to see less trash in the ocean and what can we take out of our school classrooms, and lunch to reduce the amount of trash and the impact we have. They used almost all recyclable materials or trash they collected. They did 100% of this project on their own, the idea, the collecting of materials to decorate and assemble. They used STEM class time and volunteered to give up their own recesses and come in before school to work on their project. They would have done more if they had more time.

The Bunceton 6th Grade Science Class chose to create a Star Wars themed project that consists of Yoda and R2D2.  They used a 33 gallon trash can and put it upside-down on an asteroid of cardboard.  In order to get the can the correct color and shape, students used end roll paper and cardboard to make the can take the shape of R2D2.  One student created Yoda in the paint program on the computer and then they traced him onto a larger sheet of paper and attached him to a cardboard backing.  They used water bottles and paper towel rolls to create light sabers to hold the "No More Trash" sign.
