As you know, we are going to be involved in animal research very soon! We will also begin exploring 3D shapes. During our 3D shape unit, your students will have an opportunity to get hands on and engineer their animal using three-dimensional objects! In order to make this creative project a success, we are in need of some donated recyclable materials. Please send in the following items for our class project. Please make sure that the items are lightweight (paper, cardboard, plastic). If you think of other ideas related to the shapes listed below, feel free to send those in as well. You may begin sending in these materials ASAP. Thank you in advance for your support of this fun and integrated unit of study!
empty paper towel rolls
empty oatmeal containers (cylinders)
paper wrapping on ice cream or waffle cone holder
empty cereal boxes
empty raisin, Jell-O, or pudding boxes
different sized gift boxes (jewelry, clothing, etc)
