Don't throw it away! That carton can become a table easel or a train car. Your students can turn plastic soda bottles into candlehorders or terrariums. And paper tubes can have a second life as kazoos, maracas, or bird feeders. Beautiful Junk clearly and simply explains over 200 creative ways to recycle boxes, cans, flyers, and other throwaways into classroom equipment and materials for student projects. The projects are amply illustrated, and many diagrams and patterns are provided, too.

This book not only outlines many projects which can be used in conjunction with recycling, garbage and environmental units, it also sparks ideas for other projects with its open-ended structuring. I utilized this resource as a cross-curriculum starter while home-schooling my son and highly recommend this to anyone with some extra "junk" lying around and at least one ambitious child.
