Today in the Clear Spring School woodshop, the 5th and 6th grade students finished carving and sanding pens and then began making toy cars and trucks for free distribution to children through the local food bank. Killian drilled holes in wheels while other students sawed and sanded the bodies of their cars. Reflection after class led to a lively discussion of recent news about the recall of Chinese toys, the few things that can be bought this year that are "Made in America," and the actual pleasure we can find in making things on our own.
