annual showcase to mark the end of the school year. It's a nice way for families to reflect on some of the work done over the year, present their favorite projects and get to see what others have done. And it's free and open to the public.
Then he had this great idea about display title. The title was going to be "Garbology". I stenciled it on the cardboard and was wondering how to color it in. And M suggested not coloring, but instead making a collage with little pieces of recyclable garbage that he collected - cardboard, paper, plastic bags, foil.
If you are wondering about the colorful mountain, it's actually a landfill. He even drew and colored leachate pipes. Part of it is closed, sealed off and turned into a park (M drew some grass and helped me make the trees). The other, lower, part is an open landfill. The round bingo-looking things on the left side are some of the more interesting garbage-related activities we've done.
M also selected two of his garbage trucks to represent the rest at the showcase and made a mini-landfill with colorful pieces of paper for demonstration. And we brought as many of the books we've read about garbage as we could.
