I wanted to assist our fabulous 1st grade teachers & students w/ their environmental science projects. It was about the solar system and especially our planets. I have not done paper mache’ too much w/ students because of the time & mess of it all but……we got inspired around here and got to work making an absolute mess of the greenhouse. A fun mess I should say! One class paper mache’d the balloons….
The other class painted…..
It’s hard to tell who made a bigger chaotic mess. But it was beautiful chaos and well worth the clean up time once the efforts paid off and the planets made it to our enviro night.
