My first year teaching at QAD Primary, I was approached by admin in regards to a collaborative project that incorporated solar technology and art with recycling in mind. I chose to work with my grade 5 students on this project because we would be using tools such as box cutters and hot glue guns. There were a few blood spills and burnt fingers but we made it through and continued the project for three years. Each year I would build on previous years knowledge and how I could help students design and create their Level 1 kit lanterns. Here are some of the results.
