Criteria – Reuse and recycle ‘trash’ items to make a fashionable outfit.
Room 7 has been looking at ways to look after our environment. We have also been practising many ways to work cooperatively with others. So, we combined the 2 ideas together – 'In groups design and make a trash outfit!'
The planning phase – for this we had to decide on the type of outfit we wanted to make.
We then had to decide what items of trash we were going to recycle to make it. Then we had to draw our designs.
The doing phase – now we get to make it! We found that some of our ideas on paper didn’t actually work when we tried to create it so we had to modify our designs. It was important for us to remember to talk to each other and share our thoughts as we were working.
The final product – We decided to share our designs at Te Mihi’s assembly on the final day of school this term. We did a fashion show for the whole school. We looked amazing!
Next steps - As a class, we want to continue recycling and working with a variety of others in a positive way.
