Green Studio Turns into Paper Recycling Factory

First they ripped used paper into tiny bits.
Factory work can be tedious.  Teacher made it more fun by personifying the paper.  "I am too big.  Rip me more."

Then they made pulp by shaking the paper with water.  

Another tedious factory job made fun by adding music and dance.

Then they used a deckle and mold to pull sheets of paper.

Students worked in pairs.  Here they are working to squeeze sponges.

 Students had lots of reasons why using recycled paper is better for the environment.  But as they worked they  were asked to think about how much water it took to make the recycled paper....We hope that  are on their way to be more thoughtful users of paper.
