Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
The materials you'll need are: granola bar box, tape (any kind) ,scissors, a pencil, and a piece of card stock paper or a piece of thin cardboard.
Step 2: Measure
You'll be making box dividers for your box. To insure it will fit and close correctly, you need to figure out what size it'll will need to be. First line it up and draw a line to where the box ends to to measure how long it needs to be. Then to measure the height line it up again and put a mark to indicate how tall it is (don't count the flaps), put it just a tad lower than it actually is so it will close easily. Cut where the lines you drew are. Finally, try putting it inside, if it's a little big don't worry just cut each side a little smaller.(It didn't fit inside the first time for me either.)
Step 3: Assembling Box Dividers
To make the divider you made stay up you'll need to tape it down. To tape it down put a piece of tape in the center, half of the tape on the paper, and half of then bend it so the part of the paper is laying flat, do the same on the other side. After that use the remaining paper/cardboard and measure it like in photo 4 and make sure the box it sideways.The red lines represent where you would mark your cutting lines. You would put a line where the the box divider is and then the crease of the flaps on each side. Cut down where you made your lines and you should have 3 pieces for more dividers. Put the dividers in sideways. Put your first divider in the middle on the top half. Then, the two for the bottom half. Put the tape on the same you did with the first one. Put tape on where the corners meet. Now you should have 5 different dividers in your box.
Step 4: Put in All Your Things!
To put in a necklace get a wall clip and stick it inside, this will make it easier to grab. You should put this in one of the smallest dividers . You could also put in your phone, put it in one of the biggest. Another thing you should put in is your wallet or just extra cash. Next, you could put in a pieces of paper and a pencil to take notes and your grocery list so you won't have to buy one of those 3,799$ grocery list fridges. Finally, you could put in your car keys.
Step 5: Great Job!
I hope you had a great time making this! Thank you, and have a great day.
