We then meet up in a big circle together and discuss how much trash there is to throw away. We also brain storm some used for the trash.
I give the students a yellow piece of construction paper and they then choose their favorite piecse of Back to School Trash. I love seeing what they come up with and their ideas for how to be a good MONSTER friend.
Glue legs to help friends stick together & colored pencil hair to show that we all come in different shades are two of my favorites.
This activity gets the class thinking right away about friendship and we recycle too!
