I am a 5th grade ELA & SS teacher. This lesson aligns with the scope and sequence of the standards noted. It has clear learning objectives and is written in an easy to follow format. How much fun would it be for students to participate in this project!

While the project does meet most criteria of high quality project based learning, my one question is, why not take this to the real world? This project could easily become a reality for students. Again, I love the lessons and activities, I’m just thinking in order to make this learning more meaningful, making this work benefit the school or community would help students better understand their importance in reducing, reusing, and recycling. Student involvement in this project could greatly benefit the school, community and earth at large! Some minor remixing is all it would take.
