I absolutely love to find and create multiple uses for products that some people think of as only what the product is intended for. One such product is PVC pipe and fittings.
PVC is one of the most popular products to use in the home for plumbing solutions but there are so many things you can create to benefit your classroom.
As I was building up our arsenal of task products to fill our shelves, I asked my husband to create some PVC pattern designs which I took pictures of to give the students a pattern to follow. Example of our product below,
The students love to recreate the patterns and like how they become more challenging. We also have some students that like to try creating their own pattern that we take pictures of so other students can try to recreate their design. This is just one of the many uses for PVC in the classroom. The nice thing is that I went to the local building store and told them what I was using the products for and they graciously gave me the materials shown in the box for FREE!!
Here are just a few images of ideas you could do from helping create student aids to organization.
