shark teeth.

Yesterday in the Clear Spring School wood shop, students continued practicing their whittling in advance of the fall camping trip. On Wednesday I will join them at the camp site to oversee whittling activities.

One of the students decided to make his whittled wood into shark teeth. They look more like bear teeth to me. But that led to all the students making shark tooth necklaces of their own. They assured me that the red marker they carefully applied to the sharp points, was just red color and not blood. The boys were proud to wear the things they had made.

Making necklaces provided an opportunity to introduce another tool, and for the students to gain some practice in its use. What tool was that? The picture is worth a thousand words.

Make, fix, create, and increase the likelihood that others learn likewise.
