The study on the production of chalk out of seashells were designed to produce quality dustless and long lasting chalk to compare with the standard existing commercialized chalks if there are any, which was sold in the market. The chalk out of seashells is for local or non-local used for schools or any educational aspects or even at home which can be form into different sizes and according to your will. I used the seashells to recycle and transformed it into a useful product that will be used in our developing community. The production is based on the following procedures. First, collect seashells from the seashore. Then, boil it until it opens and being crush into powder and becomes ready to be processed and make to different figures. Thus, the production of the product was accomplish and tested on its quality and strength. Data on the successful product were tested and was finished accurately. Results showed that the said finished product, made from seashells, is comparable in terms of appearance and quality. I hereby certify the above project is the result of my work done in my research.
A. Background of the Study
More people used to collect seashells for fun and for past time. They made decorations, jewelries and even accessories for a doll out of it. Aside from those things, seashells can also be made into a much useful thing. We are aware that education is the most powerful key for us to succeed. In addition, to support this, we need some facilities and materials for us to make it easier and clearer. Of course, we know that we already have some modernized equipments, but still, for those poor countries and people who want to send in school, even a worst facility matters. We already have whiteboards that just need markers and projectors as the most modernized. Still, the origin of those is just a simple blackboard and a piece of chalk. Therefore, I, made some trials and errors from different raw materials to be made into a chalk. I agreed and succeeded in the trials and made chalk out of seashells
B. Statement of the Problem
The price of almost all commercialized or local products are continuously increasing. This is a big aspect to consider in schooling. Some of the schools do not have enough support from government and this thing brings difficulties for us students.
C. Significance of the Study
This study opens another way for us people to be able to save and make chalks that are much durable with long-lasting use that will take part in our study. The study conducted as a remedy for the common problem of spending much in. It also helps us to gain money when you make this as your business affair. We can also make some raw materials that we thought to be useless, transformed into a much useful and improved thing, thus decreasing garbage in the environment.
D. Scope and Limitation
This study is focused on designing and producing alternative chalks. It also deals with the assessment of its actual advantages as compared to some commercialized one. The qualities and quantities data obtained in the testing of the product against the control were limited to three tests only.
REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE
A. CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK
A seashell is the common name for a hard, protective outer layer, a shell, or in some cases a "test", that was created by a sea creature, a marine organism. The shell is part of the body of a marine animal, in most cases the exoskeleton, usually that of an animal without a backbone, an invertebrate. The word seashell is often used to refer only to the shells of marine mollusks, i.e.mollusk shells, but it can also be used to mean the shells of a wide...
