Global Cardboard Challenge

 We would like to share with you an amazing story about a little boy in Los Angeles whose imagination in cardboard engineering inspired a local filmmaker.  Take a moment to watch the video called "Caine's Arcade". (Your child has already watched this video in class.)

Caine's story, and what happened when the filmmaker brought his story to the world, has inspired Pacific Union to try our own version of a Global Cardboard Challenge, Skunker-style.

During the next couple of weeks, each class will be using their imaginations to build something--anything--out of cardboard and other recycled materials.  Part of the challenge for students  will be to try and build every element of their project out of a found material rather than using or buying already made toys (i.e. legos, blocks etc).  In addition to the classroom projects, our students are encouraged to build something at home and bring their Cardboard Challenge project to school to share.  Ideas for materials include cardboard, paper, tape, plastic cups, packaging--anything you already have in your recycle bin.  You should not have to buy anything to accomplish this.  Imagination is the main ingredient!

All projects will be due on Tuesday, October 13th.  The projects will be set up and ready for viewing in the cafeteria on Wednesday, October 14th, from 3:30 to 4:30 and Thursday, October 15th, from 7:30am to 8:30 am.  

We hope to see you there!
