Thanks to all who helped lead me to Kris. Thanks Kris for allowing me to share your site. I will be sharing the projcets I currently do with 5th graders in conjunction with an op art unit at my conference. We make CD spinning tops which the students love. We have spin-offs to see who can make their top spin the longest- it could be a great lead in to graphing and other science/math related lessons. I got that idea from this list also but am not sure of the contributor. Kris gave me the great idea of making mobiles using CDs and we have a big one hanging in the media center. We also made Christmas ornaments which were weather proof for the big community tree that I always have to donate ornaments for -yes we still are allowed to have a tree! Thanks to you all I now have some new ideas. Randy in Maine says they have made a wreath out of CDs.
