Hamburgers, 1st Grade

My first graders have recently been studying recycling, so I thought this was the perfect time to try this project. This lesson has been posted on several blogs recently, but I think it originated from Kid's Artists.These were made out of old cardboard, tissue paper, scraps of fabric and paper, At of bottom of the hamburger students drew a table cloth. Inside the hamburger, students were to cut out shapes that looked like a specific type of food.

This project was a stretch to get done in one hour, but the kids worked hard, and I think they turned out great. If you have the luxury of being able to stretch it out for more than one class, it would be even better. The only issue with doing this project with such a young age is that their little fingers can't cut the cardboard. I ended up cutting most of the buns out for them.


  1. I totally love this....gotta work it in before the end of the year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Yes indeed, it's from my blog. I love to see how my Dutch burgerlesson is flying over the USA!
