Our first graders created a trash can using one of their favorite book characters: Pete the Cat! They used old items around the school to reuse them for our display. Empty tissue boxes = shoes, empty laminator rolls = arms and legs, empty cardboard box = cut out head. They worked together, with teacher help, to create a slogan that sounded like Pete the Cat to encourage other students to recycle and keep their trash in the can instead of littering.
