found-materials

I came a cross a great idea using found materials.  You can collect and gather a variety of recycled objects from around your home or ask your students to bring in materials, but I just focused on collecting lids.  I have collected various sizes, colours, and shapes.  From the dollar store I purchased a large, shallow tray to gather all the objects and some circular cork boards for children to arrange their materials on.  Choose a space in your room to house the materials or display them on a table–tray in the middle and cork boards around to create an inviting space.  Allow children to create designs based on colour, shapes or other attributes and see where the discussion may go….
