Our theme this week is recycling and with Earth Day not far away I came up with a plan. I was browsing one of my favorite teachers, Jessica Meachum and came across her oh so cute classroom igloo. If you haven’t seen it you must check it out. She made the whole thing with gallon milk jugs. My classroom theme is bees, so we are doing a milk jug hive. My kids are pretty excited about making a cool reading hive out of recycled milk jugs. I will defiantly post pictures once we have finished.
Here is a picture from Jessica Meachum's classroom to give you an idea.

Here are some of their samples
