In Room 11 we have been learning how to recycle paper. After making a sheet with plain newsprint, we are exploring ways we could alter the properties of our recycled paper to use it for different purposes.
Feel free to post some pictures of your first attempt at recycling paper!
Here are some questions for you to consider and answer on this blog post.
1. What were the properties of your recycled paper? Think about its size, shape, colour, texture, strength etc.
2. What do you want to be able to do with your paper? How will you change the properties of your paper in order to do this?
