Ms. Gormley’s 3rd Class recycling activity.

We had great fun in 3rd class using recycled materials to make our very own vehicles. Who ever knew you could make a double decker bus or a convertible car from “rubbish”. We really enjoyed using our imagination and creativity skills to create some of our dream vehicles.
