You misspelled making'--perhaps you should focus on learning rather than playing to pass the time at school.

I used to make wireframe airraft out of paperclips. I was particularly good at Russian-built aircraft and tanks for some reason. You could try your hand at that. Paper wasps are another thing. I can roll a mean wasp, and shoot 'em better than most people can shoot a pistol. They're fun to have wars with, but only shoot the consenting (other combatants in the war), make sure you don't leave them on the floor (that's trash, and if you do, the teacher is more likely to shut you down), and most of all, don't get caught. Doodle. I used to draw stuff on my notes, leave them strategically lying around, and pretty soon people were asking me to draw stuff for them. That payed for my soda habit. Scheme. Most of Junior High was spent scheming.

And now it's summmer, so you don't even have the boredom problem. Maybe my tips will help come fall.

please just talk about the forum topic because I am getting my bored by the second

thanks alot butI was actually looking for ideas! Just to let you know I have an A+ in english and science so I do learn but it gets boreing fast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You could learn.... But, being a student, I know what you mean. Kiteman posted a great link for you. But really, don't get caught, and don't vandalize anything.

You could learn....

Now, there's a novel idea!

oscar says: half the time, the subject is boring, or the teacher is rambling on. but when she isnt, then things get fun. its even possible to learn stuff. but above all, dont get caught, and always respect your lab coat.

Back when I was in school I was fascinated by so many things....it was hard to get bored.....except this one World Cultures class, where the teacher opened the massive text book, asked us to all open to the same page, he'd put the book on the podium, and walk away and recite from the book (as if he were reading from it).....I wanted to paint eyeballs on my glasses so I wouldn't get caught sleeping....aarrrgh.

i had a hebrew class like that in 6th grade

I'm guessing it's a class where you learn Hebrew, same as "French class" is a class where you learn French.

Or is that too obvious?

i ended up learning the titles to all the gordon korman books instead though. the teacher was soo weird and bad. here are examples: 1) we spent weeks learning different parts of the life of philosophers, and it was usually neither interesting, stimulating, or actually learning. we just read the stupid textbook. there were never any tests, and, had i gone to a hebrew high school, it would not have been on the questionnaire. they would never ask about the philosophers. 2) she had favorites. i wasnt one 3)after every sentence, shed pause, breath, and but on this really weird smile. even if she was talking about the saddest thing ever.

cool! i dont have science this semester :[

this year, science is boring. we are learning about the human body. in very high detail.

well, fortunately im involved in art so i just doodle(you should see my notes...) you can either download tetris onto your cellphone or play with things in the room. i play with the eye washing stations in science class because you can shove a pencil in one of the hole and then turn the water on with the other hole clogged with hand, it shoot the pencil(sometimes...) in the air and water everywhere print out some schematics and try to make sense of them.

Well, during some lunch periods, and general study periods (if I had nothing else to do), I tended to create "what if" scenarios, or make up simple games (sometimes involving my environment without having to interact with it). That was a long time ago though :-)
