Plastic Bagging Your Catch

When 5th Grade Science teacher at Sacred Heart School, Miss Sabina Boet, gave her class an assignment to recycle plastic bags, she was excited about the ingenuous ideas they came up with...they made great items such as a fishing pole, a cross, a key chain, a lanyard, a pair of shoes, and even teaser toys for their cats. But, Braden decided he could make plastic bags work for him and his dad when they go fishing. He put several bags together and braided them finding plastic pieces around the house to finish the ends. His stringer was just the right length, and, as you can see, it worked great with the fish he caught! At SHS, we love seeing our students find great ways to make our world a little better using their brains and materials they can recycle!
