I teach in a music school where music plays an important role in the curriculum. Landfill Harmonic inspired me, and I decided to have my art students create their own musical instruments from clean garbage that I collected at our school and my home. At the beginning of art class the students watched the video. I guided a discussion about the video afterwards - how did the people live, what were they able to create from the trash, and how did the video inspire my students. Then, the students went to our "landfill" to select materials for their instruments. As the students began to work I realized not only was this a great recycling project, but it was also about problem solving. Some students struggled with the construction of their instrument. Specifically, they need help with how to connect two pieces of garbage together; which adhesives to use; how to manipulate cardboard; best painting methods (always paint light colors first); and so on. As I went around the room to work one-on-one with my students I realized that I was solving their problems instead of prompting them to solve their own problems. I quickly changed my wording so that I was guiding them toward the right solution. As the students completed their instruments I displayed them around the classroom. I was thrilled that they put the time and effort into making their instruments look as authentic as possible. They literally took garbage and turned it into a 3D object. But, even more important, I believe they learned new skills and gained confidence in what they were capable of achieving.
