When kids in grade 6 walk into the woodshop for the first time they have already heard about the project from their siblings and are SO excited to get started.
So here are my learning objectives:
-The students will learn to creatively solve a problem within a set of guidelines.
-The students will learn to measure, apply the measurements and create a cutlist
-The students will learn to safely use a drill press and a scroll saw.
-The students will learn to effectively learn to glue.
-1/4" square graph paper.
-3/8" MDF 8.5" by 11"
-1/4" wood strips 3/4" by about 3' per student
-7/16" steel ball bearing. (per student) You can get these from electric motor rebuild places or just look under bearings in the 'pages.
-12" Forstner bit
-Sanding board. (or just plain 120G paper sheets)
