ReCycled RoBotS

Do you remember my robots? Last year I made a series of robots out of recycled materials. Last week we made Earth Day inspired art work. The fourth graders created Recycled Robots inspired by some of my examples.

I was surprised by their response, I thought they would like the project, but they loved the project. As the first class was finishing it became clear that they would have to take their robots home that day because they didn't want to be apart from them. Their teachers reported that the kids were so excited that the teachers had to admire each robot before the students would put them away to take home.
I look like a bag lady all week as I carried around a big bag of recycled packaging, but this was surely a winner of a project.

The robot creations are all so different! Isn't it fun to watch the kids in the creating process? I wish we could release more of that creative energy in our schools.
