Going Green

December 10, 2008

“We use the laminating machine at our school quite often, and there is a lot of scrap plastic that is cut off and tossed in the trash. I like to use these plastic scraps in class. I give my students a writing task such as a sentence, vocabulary word, drawing, etc. Each student writes on the scrap plastic with an overhead marker, and at the end of the exercise I put up each student's response to the problem on the overhead. It is a great feedback exercise since students can immediately see what works and what doesn’t. I get to see how many students understand the concept, which helps me see if they need more practice. The scrap plastic gets washed and reused. This overhead exercise makes class fun.”
