Paper mache', acrylics, spray paint were utilized to create this representation of Mario and Yoshi coming to help Missouri clean up trash.
Sixth through eighth grades.
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.
Students created a tie-dye coffee mug that says "The Future will be Bitter if you Litter" they made foam coming out the top and over the sides and used the "No More Trash" logo as a topper for a stir stick
Students brainstormed ideas for the campaign. After deciding on Flash, the group set<!---break--->
to work making the relief areas out of recycled cardboard, plastic lids and plaster gauze.
Once all construction was complete they painted the can.
The students pick up trash around the school building and thought it would be nice to have trash cans with logos that encouraged the students to keep the school clean.
With a very sports driven class, they chose to create a basketball-hoop inspired trash can to place where our high school students sit for basketball games.
The 7 students brain-stormed ideas first. They decided on a Star Wars Theme and to use R-2 D-2 as the design. They recycled the trash can used for last year's contest which needed to be sanded and repainted, which the students did. They then divided their group into the designers, painters and decorators. The designers planned how to make the dome for the top of R-2 D-2. They drew out the design and cut out parts from the cardboard boxes brought in by the students. The students used glue and water to make a paste for the paper mache to make the head. They secured the strips with card
We designed and built a trash can to look like the mascot of our school, a raider. We bought the trash can with the money we earned from participating in the Ameren Energy Efficiency program. We did this in our Performance Based Learning (PBL) class. We used cardboard boxes and colored paper to make the head and arms. We used paper to make the skirt. We cut out the mouth of the raider and the bottom of the head and fit it on top of the trash can so students could feed trasch to the raider. Our slogan is "Don't be an Earth hater, feed our North County Raider." The most challenging part of
West Plains Middle School 7th Grade RTI students wanted to use something that was currently popular to teach the school and community about keeping Missouri free from litter. They chose a Star Wars theme and R2D2 to be the spokesperson. The students transformed a 30 gallon metal trashcan into R2D2's body by using paint, and created his head by using paper mache with recycled newspaper, recycled cardboard, glue and paint. R2D2's legs are made of scrap lumber and his feet are painted plastic tubs.
