This lesson is fantastic to help your younger students develop their fine motor skills. Students love the idea of turning trash to treasure! To make this lesson even more engaging, you could have students go on a “treasure” hunt around the school, picking up small odds and ends (broken pencils, paper clips, twigs, etc…) to use in their sculptures. The lesson would also be a great tie-in to recycling or Earth Day.
