Earth Day 2015 is coming this month! So, celebrate by having your students do an upcycling activity. To help you out, I'm giving you a free upcycling curriculum.
Here are the 4 easy steps:
- Download the free Design Case Curriculum PDFs using this link. (I'm making this opensource under the creative commons now so feel free to pass it along) and unzip it. (see quick start below)
- Go to your local bike shop, climbing wall, upholstery shop, etc. and ask for some of their hard-to-recycle items like rubber tubs, old ropes, discarded fabric, corks, burlap, etc.
- Use the activities in the Design Case Curriculum to help your students create a new upcycled product.
