Repurposing- Our New Inquiry Topic

For the next two terms, we are learning about repurposing. This is when you take something and make it into something different. As a class we will be developing our own product and working out how we can sell it. Yesterday we introduced the children to the word 'Repurposing' and they brainstormed ways to repurpose different things from our recycling bin. Today I brought in some popcorn. Room 8 thought the main purpose of popcorn was to eat it. We discussed other purposes that popcorn could have. Then we turned our popcorn into necklaces by carefully using needles and cotton. We gave the popcorn a new purpose!
