Crafting with Recyclables: Even More Projects

From the Set How-to Library

This book includes ideas for turning common household items into a variety of interesting and creative crafts. Crafters practice comprehension skills as they use text and diagrams to follow the steps for each project. The activities push students to learn and apply domain-specific vocabulary, practice new techniques, and build on concepts that may already be familiar. Other tools, including an index and additional resources, encourage readers to locate information and explore further independently.
