600 littered plastic bottles were used by Tom Davies, a New Zealand native living in Fiji, to create this boat.
With so many options out there, disposable plastic bottles should really be avoided unless absolutely necessary. We found this fabulous back to school bulletin board at Child Centered Teaching, a blog designed by educator, Regina Castillo.
Using the scraps from the first {isosceles} triangle for the appropriate angle, create the "hull" of the boat.
Cut a 1-inch strip, length-wise, from a piece of construction paper and fold the strip in half.
Trim any excess construction paper from the mast, glue the hull of the boat to the mast, and add detailing as desired! Happily authoring posts about lesson plans, crafts, unique bulletin board ideas, and other helpful resources for MPM Ideas since 2008.
Put a positive spin on your classroom expectations bulletin board this school year by turning it into a classified ad, like this board from Debra Henk.
Jami, fourth grade teacher and guest blogger at Two Things in Common, designed this great spring bulletin board.
Add a bit of humor to your classroom rules and management strategy with this travel-themed display we found at Real Classroom Ideas!
We featured a similar door display, but thought it might be nice to see the theme adapted for a classroom bulletin board display! If you're stuck for ideas on classroom and behavior management, be sure to check out this bulletin board display from Jennifer, first grade teacher and former Scholastic blogger.
We were super impressed with the amount of detail put into the design and just had to share! Hide the "seam" with a 2-inch strip of white bulletin board paper, edging one side to look like waves.
Nelson's Class, Room 203, etc] Is Sailing Back To School!" or "Sailing Into __________ [Third Grade, Mrs. Simply fold the strip of paper in half once again and line the crease up with the center of the mainsail.
Using a scrap of brown bulletin board paper, create an "island" {cut a quarter-circle} in the bottom right corner.
I also bet if you check out the garage you can find a few other pieces of junk that have lead or are even made with lead in them. Or worse yet you set two out, fore and aft, then one gets stuck swinging you around into the current and water started coming over the stern? Create clouds from white construction paper to arrange in the "sky" as well as a sun {optional} to complete the scene.


Well unless your nickname happens to be Gatorbait or your last name Dundee then you probably would rather not do that if you didn't have to.
It is simply a parachute which will make sure the anchor falls right side up and lands correctly. Or if you have plenty of crete then just mix a batch up in a small bucket or whatever and jam the pipe in so it gets at least 6 inches or more of crete up the pipe then stick in the ground or cover the end some way the mixture won't dribble out. Or notch the pipe with a saw.(I've heard this gives you more spray and more oxygen in the water but never tried it).
Follow the instructions above for making an anchor drogue above with a couple of minor changes.
On this page I intend to provide you with some  projects you can do yourself to save time, money and will come in handy as well. What you need is a lure retriever or a lure knocker as they are often called.There are lots of different types available to be bought and although they are often pricey they will pay for themselves pretty quickly most of the time. It's a good idea to stick a pencil or stick thru the eye and rest it on the can's edges to keep the eye from settling too deep into the concrete. You can make one easily from an old piece of fabric(towels work well)and about 10 ft of  twine. I just spray paint them bright yellow ,white or silver with a burst of red at the head on each side. Now use a piece of garden hose(the neighbor's if possible) and a couple of hose clamps to connect the pump and the pipe together.
Also if you want to you can go to your local tackle shop or shop online and get yourself one or more sinker molds. For the sample one below I used a piece of sheet metal with a hole drilled thru it to run the eyebolt thru. Fasten the pipe to one side of your cooler at the top with the holes pointing toward the bottom of the cooler. Plus, you'll go forth with the knowledge & feeling of accomplishment that YOU DID IT YOURSELF.
I can't emphasize enuff how much of a difference that makes to the well bred outdoorsy type, which by the way also gives you bragging rights . Now get some pliers and hold the lead by its hook or wire or whathaveyou.(old spinnerbaits have lead heads) Place it over the indentation on the brick and Flame On! My Grandpa used an old spark plug with a couple of foot long pieces of dog chain he had wired to the plug.
Now you can throw the anchor easily where it sticks into the bottom and will hold firm but comes out with no problem and will not get stuck. Force the nail (or screw) thru the hole on the other end binding the line in place tightly.


Kinda fun too, playing like a caveman trying to spear a fish!Might even come in handy in a self defense situation. If you've done everything right the water should start spraying into the cooler from the pipe.
Now attach your fifth line to a larger drag line long enough to allow your sea anchor to run 6-8 ft behind your boat. You don't want to have to long a line because the sea anchor will go too deep and makes it a lot easier to snag it up. He would snap the swivel around his line, let the plug slide down to the lure,jiggle it around a bit until he hung the chain in the plugs hooks,then yank hard once and bring the whole thing back up. Some guys even tie or glue on big feathers on each side to give it the appearance of a flying fish. For the same reason you shouldn't use your sea anchor where there are a lot of stumps and snags to catch it on as you WILL be making plenty of these then! For a bigger boat you can add a couple of pieces of re bar set cross ways near the bottom of the anchor with about 4 inches sticking out. Either use the water from where you're fishing or treat your water with a preparing solution you can get from any place that sells aquarium supplies.
Experiment a little with the size and length of your line and it's easy to get it right for your boat.
You can make a more modern one with a chain link or a carabiner you can get at the hardware store or flea market for about a buck. Add 3 or 4 8 to 12 inch long pieces of dog chain or smaller chain that will fit onto the carabiner or link and attach this to a heavy gauge line.
I used some old # 6 solid copper wire I had and made a loop around both re bars and all the way to the top with a couple of twists at bottom and top. If you want to make it even better spend the few more bucks to get a livewell pump and run the inlet hose(livewell aerators have 2 outlets) long enough to reach over the side of your boat.
Snap that around your line and do like Grandpa did and it'll save you a lot of change for about 2 bucks or so and a half hours work.
Filled the whole thing with quikcrete and when it dried I cut out the bottom with tin snips. Note: A chain link (the kind that screws together) is a bit more heavy duty than a carabiner and will last longer but the threads do corrode after a bit. Remember tho that if you invested in a lead pot smelter you have to separate the lead from the junk wire, hooks and all before you put the lead in the pot.
