Tuning in to the environment

This term our CBL Big Idea is ‘Environment’. Through this, we are focussing on ‘waste’. As part of the ‘Tuning In’ phase, we looked at the guiding question; How we can reuse items to control how much waste we create?

We were able to use our creative thinking to come up with ideas to solve the problem of how much waste we create. One of the provocations was a plastic bowl. Below are some of the creative ways we came up with to reuse it.

Harnihal: “A bowl to mix things.

Prisha: “A bowl to eat cereal.

Mehtaab: “We could turn it into a jellyfish because the bowl is shaped like a jellyfish top.

Shorya: “First it was a bowl then I made a spinner.


We then explored a range of different items and came up with creative ways to reuse them once the original function was finished.

Mayra: “I came up with the neck pillow to make a snake.

Mehreen: “The glass, I put flowers in it.

Talia: “My item was a fork and I reused it as Forky from Toy Story 4.

Faris: “Soap; sunscreen.

Prisha: “It was a jar, I reused it; a fish tank.

Now, here is a question we want to know from you: What do you have around the house that you no longer use or need? What could you reuse it as? Let us know in the comments!
