Paper Making!!

Thanks to Mr Parada's class for inspiring James John to think about how we use paper. After a month long effort to help classes think about how they use paper, Friday we had a celebration with Ms. Keeler's class who won the contest on reusing paper in the classroom.

 Here is how we made new paper from recycled paper:

 Shred paper
 Blend it into a pulp
 Strain out the water
Make sure you have lots of awesome kids and awesome family helpers!

 Here is video of what it takes to make paper from trees (rather than from recycled paper)
