Today the Clear Spring School first grade students made Christmas trees cut from a triangular piece of wood. Each piece is sawn from the triangular stock that tapers from 3 1/2" down to nothing at the other end over a 13 inch length. It is an easy project, and the children will do the painting and final decorating in their classroom. The project starts with two students teaming up to make the angle cut from one end of the 3 1/2" x 13" board to the other. Then each has their own sawing and drilling to do to complete the tree.
