Earth Day and a Freebie!

Classroom freebies

I am linking up with Charity Preston for Maniac Mondays.  Head on over to Classroom Freebies to check out all of the wonderful freebies this week.
My classroom will be starting Earth Day activities this week.  I know its not until April 22nd but we have a field trip on Thursday and spring carnival on Friday so I wanted to get a head start on it.

I have created this Earth Day unit:

It includes literacy and math activities.  It also has a craft and a mini-reader.  click on the pic to check it out.  
Now onto your freebie!  In the spirit of Earth Day I wanted the freebie to fit the theme.  So here you are:

I am having my students bring in 'used' material to class.  I am going to collect it for a whole week (Or as long as my OCD can stand it. LOL!)   Then on Earth Day I am going to give each student some used materials and ask them to invent something new.  They could make picture frames, art, pencil holders, jewelry,  or anything their creative brains will let them.  They will then title their piece and write about it.  
Hope you enjoy!  
Just click on the pic and download the preview for your freebie.
