today in the wood shop


The third and 4th grade students finished their project of making pinwheels for the pre-school. We followed patterns and directions from Ednah Anne Rich's book Paper Sloyd, having used the earlier models to perfect the students' skills at measuring and cutting.

The first and second grade students began making toy kangaroos for their study of Australia. It is a challenging project with lots of cutting. We will finish the project next week.

You know, what always comes through in the pictures from Clear Spring is that the kids are having fun while they learn these new skills. Well done!
