Turn Textbooks into Art With Upcycling

Need a great way to combine hands-on Makerspace activities with getting rid of some textbooks? Check out Edudemic’s post about Textbook Upcycling! From fedoras to planters the ideas are limitless.

Take the activities beyond upcycling and talk to them about product life-cycles. Check out the 21-minute documentary, The Story of Stuff. In it, students trace the life of a product and see the impact of each item they buy.
