Over the past week cardboard boxes, egg cartons, soda cans, and spaghetti sauce bottles have been migrating into our classroom awaiting their magical transformation. On Thursday the students divided into teams with the NC Region Project groups to create a "box" representing their region. See their great work below! Ms. Rankey is assembling the collective boxes from classrooms around the school and will paint them one color, just as our mentor artist did with her work. The grand reveal will be on National Recycling Day. Ask your 4th grader about Louise Nevelson and their collaborative work on this project!
