Students will construct a deckle and mold to use in class and at home. They will use different equipment to see different size and shape of paper and learn the paper-making vocabulary. They will begin by recycling everyday paper and then add leaves, flowers, grass, etc to decorate the paper. After learning paper making, they will then get a sheet of pulp to make paper from plant material.
On day 2, students will flatten their paper using an iron (if necessary) and then create a lovely journal. Each journal will then be hand sewn.
