This art piece was created by my 5th graders using recycled bottle caps (it took us the entire school year to collect).
STEAM teaching points:
S – Importance of recycling and the dangers of plastic in the environment.
T- Computer graphing and internet research to decide on a topic. Students created a Google Form survey to poll the class.
E- Constructing and building the art piece.
A- Color and placement of caps.
M- Measurement of the bottle caps and backing measurements. Students also learned who to calculate the diameter, radius, area and circumference of a circle (bottle cap)
