Do you have children’s books that are no longer being read at your house? We would love to have them. Some of our classrooms need more books to fill out their classroom libraries.
If you would like to donate your used children’s books, please drop them off in the front office. We will accept books that are geared towards beginning readers through middle school age (for our advanced readers). Thank you!
Paper Container Design Challenge:
The new IKEA catalog had a great article about their efforts to find new ways to reuse paper to create marketable products. The teams have been researching different grades of paper and paper pulp and are finding innovative ways to turn paper into storage containers, toys, decorations, and furniture. Your challenge is to design a marketable item for IKEA using paper, preferably paper found in the recycle bin.
Your entry must include:
a diagram of your design, including measurements for the item in production
a prototype of the design
marketing for your product, such as a catalog page or advertisement describing its features
your name and teacher’s name on all pieces of your entry
2 winners will be selected for this design challenge.
