Meet Rita!

This is recycling Rita. She lives in our classroom. I got Rita started but she will be an ongoing project in our classroom. As scholars consider whether to throw away or recycle they will also need to consider if there is a creative way to use a recyclable item to improve Rita's appearance.
I can't wait to see how Rita evolves!!

Rita was constructed by Mr. Boynton using leftover wood from woodworking projects.

I created Rita's head using a recycled lettuce container, some plastic lids and a laundry detergent spout. Her hair is made from an old kite tail and her head is filled with old ribbon, wires and paper scraps.
