You'd be surprised at how many good books you can nab there for 99 cents a piece! Then I saw a few lonely encyclopedias - some strays no longer with their original set.

While I'm not crazy about the idea of tearing up books, encyclopedias (especially single volumes) seem to be a good bet for not being used again.

Daniel Lynch, Art Teacher at Tonawanda Middle/High School in Tonawanda, NY. Every year, eighth grade art students at Tonawanda Middle School work hard fundraising and planning for their trip to The Corning Museum of Glass. This year’s group was very excited and was quite inspired from their visit. For weeks prior to the trip, students began studying glass artist Dale Chihuly. They were able to view his artwork, watch video interviews, and learned how and why he creates the work he does. While visiting The Corning Museum of Glass, students learned that Dale Chihuly’s team recently visited the gallery and reassembled the Fern Green Tower that is prominently displayed at the front entrance. Sculpture by Tonawanda Middle School students inspired by the glass art of Dale Chihuly Students started by collecting recycled water bottles and removing the label.

The wands can get slippery and difficult for little hands to hold and blow. Try using a water bottle to make bubbles and you can explore all kinds of sizes and bubble fun. Making bubble solution: Add about 1/4 water to 1 table spoon dish soap in a small container. Handmade Pride : Photo. ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ENRICHMENT ACTIVITIES: POP BOTTLE WIND SPINNER.
