Reuse Upcycled TShirts

REUSE Upcycled T-shirts Walhalla High School
Biology 2 classes (grades 10-12) and Small Animal Care collected old t-shirts and converted them into dog toys. Students learned about ways to reduce pet overpopulation, such as spay and neuter programs. In addition, they learned about programs that shelters implement to help care for dogs mentally and physically. Students learned to make dog safe toys out of common materials: t-shirts, bottles, and tennis balls.

Students made the toys at school and then visited a local dog shelter to donate the toys. They were able to do basic training, a mini photo shoot, and play with the dogs.

Students researched and presented information about various dog breeds, their characteristics and need. They also researched and created their own dog food based on nutrition needs. Next year, we hope to be able to have high school students teach middle school and elementary school students how to make toys and treats for dogs.
