Grades: All grades
Related SDG: 12 (Responsible consumption and production)
Purpose: Re-using materials, using what you would otherwise throw away
Lesson created by: Birthe Duesind Nilsen, Rothaugen, Norway
Lesson plan: At Rothaugen school in Norway, the 8th and 9th grade elective “Design and Redesign” have made Christmas ornaments using old materials, such as paper from old books, newspapers and scrap-fabric-pieces. In addition they wrapped Christmas presents using newspaper and thread instead of the traditional wrapping paper and plastic ribbons. A great way to stay sustainable while keeping the spirit of the holiday.
