Cardboard Carnvial An Earth Day Project Inspires Students to build an Arcade out of boxes.

An Earth Day recycling project took on a life of its own with Allison Barbag’s fourth grade class at Mt. Pleasant Elementary School. Students created a cardboard arcade out of recyclable materials, everything from checkers to pinball machines, basketball, soccer and Skee-Ball. The students were inspired by Caine Monroy, who when 9-years-old spent his summer vacation building an elaborate cardboard arcade inside his dad's used auto parts store. The MPE fourth graders gave out tickets for students taking a chance to win a prize. The lesson is part of a new wave of STEM activities that students throughout district have been trying to incorporate this year.
