Yes...please take the credit for the Bottle monster lesson! I did this
a small group over the summer and am going to do small versions (using
smaller bottles) with my third grade!
I did "Treasure Buddies" with my 8th graders a few years back. Recycling
used plastic bottles is not a new idea but how you apply your creativity to
them is always refreshing. I have seen the same project used in High
School -but naturally, the older the child- the more sophistocated and
detailed the solution. My "Treasure Buddy" sculpture lesson in Middle
School required the students to design their character so that the cap of
the bottle was hidden within a part of the paper mache'd body (head, arm,
tail etc.) That piece, then could be removed and personal items could be
"hidden" within the container. It was one of the favorite projects in this
age group. I have pictures (jpeg) I could sent you if you are interested.
Email me privately please.
