Each child brings in one recyclable trash item and the class builds a monster sculpture out of the trash.

  • Grade Level: K-3
  • Subjects: Social Studies, Art


Students will each bring in one recyclable trash item, and together they will build a trash monster sculpture. The class can vote on his/her name and decide on the monster’s super power. Add clothing or accessories to the sculpture as long as they are recyclable. Put the Trash Monsters on display for Halloween. Students may write stories about the trash monster as an extension.
