tying a net

Yesterday we worked on making soccer goal nets on the pvc frames I assembled the day before. Hopefully they will turn out OK.  As long as soccer balls don't go through the net, I suspect they will work.

We had the choice of using ready made nets, but it seemed to make some sense to attempt this. The point is not to have it but to learn it, and I'm learning hand in hand with the kids.

In the wood shop, high school students finished making wooden boxes for offrenda shines, and the elementary school students finished their post office boxes.

In the early days of education, Friedrich Froebel had his students make small nets, as a way of developing intellect and hand skills. So making soccer nets is only a new twist on an old thing.

Make, fix, and create...
