Cardboard challenge

October 4, 2013 

Students in Kerrie Creemer’s third-grade class at Meadow Lane Elementary School in Lee’s Summit will participate in a Global Cardboard Challenge from 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 3 at the school thanks to a Lee’s Summit Educational Foundation PEAK Grant for innovative classroom activities. Creemer has been working with her students this fall as they build items using cardboard, recycled material and imagination. The Global Cardboard Challenge is inspired by the response to the “Caine’s Arcade” film, a video about a 9-year-old boy from California who created his own elaborate arcade out of cardboard and recycled materials. Meadow Lane is the only school in Missouri participating in the Global Challenge.
