Something New from the Recycle Bin

Posted on

Anne Bock’s class from Jaffray Elementary/ Jr. Secondary School had the chance to make something new from recycling bin materials just before spring break.  The Multi-Purpose room was alive with activity the afternoon the students worked hard to make paper.  

We had five stations that students rotated through including sorting and shredding, blending, pouring and pressing, and stations to dry the newly made paper sheets out.  Students rotated through all the stations and were able to get their hand “pulpy” and get creative.  Students experimented with using different textures and colours paper to see the results.
