Today is Earth Day!  We are learning about reducing, reusing, and recycling to help protect our planet.

We were able to experience recycling first hand today by making recycled paper.  Share how we recycled our old work that we no longer needed.  What were the steps?  What did it feel like? Look like?  What are some ways you can reduce, reuse, or recycle at home?

It was so amazing. We got to blend up paper the size of a golf ball with glue and water. It looked gross but it was actually really cool. After that we scooped a hand full then we put it on a rack then we mushed it down on the rack. I thought it was gross at first but it was so cool.

We tore up peices of paper. Then we took turns looking at it while blinding it up. Next, we went outside and we had a rack with netting on it. Last, we took turns and put the paper on the rack. Also we can recycle a lot more than that. Like cans.

We made mushy paper today and I am telling you how to do it.First you need a rack,scraps of paper,a blinder,bowl of water and glue and one more bowl.So then we took the lid off the blinder in put in old paper or scrapes.Then we added water,glue.After we pored all of the mushy paper in a bowl.last we went outside and got our hands dirty but I liked the way it felt. So we put the mushy paper on the rack and set it out to dry.and that's what happend

Our class loves earth day. We are making recycled paper. It is really mushy. We had a rack screen. We put it on the ground with some skirt stuff on it. We thought it was gross because we put our hands in glue,water,and paper. Everybody thought it was gross. I thought it was fun. We had to talk about it. At first I didn't like it because it was slimy. How come it was smooshy?

I'm going to tell you how you can save the planet by recycleing and a little bit about the project we did today.You can save the planet by not throwing stuff in lakes,rivers,and streams.You can also STOP litering because if a animal eats the trash thinking it is food that will kill the animal.Now today we did a project about Earth Day.We put net on a rack and we each got to go up to the table after we tore out tiny peices of paper Mrs.Graham had a blender she put our peices of paper into the blender and poured a little water on top.Then turned it on for about 30 seconds after that she turned it off and poured it into a bowl.After everyone had a turn we went outside and got a handful we smoothed it on the we rack we had.It looked like oatmeal.It also felt like pudding.We took pictures and Mrs.Graham said she would post it on the class blog.This is how you could recycle and our project we did today in class.Happy Earth day!

Today I am going to tell you about what we did and how it felt to do that.First Mrs.Graham got everybody into groups and we all got to see how she made that nasty stuff. Then Mrs.Graham got some ribbon and she tied it and made a screen.Next we all lined up and we took some photos then we went outside and Mrs.Graham called two people at a time so then we got some of that nasty stuff and when I put my hand into the nasty stuff and oh my gosh it felt so so nasty and so so slimey and disgusting!So then I kind of got used to it and after that we had to pull some out and put it on the screen and we made a little puddles and they all collided together.Then Mrs. Graham picked it up and a lot of water kept falling down from the screen and Mrs.Graham was running with the tray so she wouldn't get the gray watery stuff all over her pants or all over her shirt and then Mrs.Graham told the class that "we will need to leave our recycle paper thingmabob outside in the sunshine so it will dry and then at the end of the day we will go outside and we will check it out and she also said that she will cut our recycle paper and we will get to take a part of the paper home and I have got to tell my family the same story

It is funny to me because I was like IWW when I first saw it. But it was just paper. It really looked like a milk shake.
Happy Earth Day !
