Cardboard Creations

A Cardboard Creature emerges...A Lucky Ladybug!
This is an example for a project I will be doing with some of my 3rd grade classes as part of my Reuse-Recycle-Recreate unit.

This project is inspired by Katie Gonzalez from Briargrove Elementary. Here's a link to her blog She has a lot of great ideas!

Stay tune for more Reuse-Recycle-Recreate projects!
