Magazines needed

We are creating collage art this week to help jump start our new inquiry into the human muscular system. If you have any old or used magazines, which you are happy to get rid of, we would love to have them in Room 11 by this Wednesday morning. Thank you in advance. Images of the art we create with your old reading material will appear here on the blog in the near future.
