Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: You Will Need:

- duct tape! ( I recommend to use white, but I didn´t have anything left)
- cardboard/ a piece of wood
- scissors
- a pen or a marker

Step 2: Lets Get Started!

cut your cardboard in to the desired shape, I didn´t have that big pieces of cardboard so mine is pretty small. You can of course make yours as big as you want. (just make sure you have enough duct tape)

Step 3: DUCT TAPING!!!!

Here comes the fun but time consuming part (depends on how big your whiteboard is). Cover your cardboard with strips of duct tape. If   you have a small piece of cardboard, like me it wont take you much time at all, and this project shouldn´t take you more then five to ten minutes to do in total. But, if your whiteboard is big it can take you about 20 minutes. 

Step 4: Get Something to Write With.

Almost any kind of pen or marker should work! Just remember not to use a permanent one. But just in case try your marker or pen or whatever out on a piece of duct tape first. If you want to erase your masterpiece and make a new one, simply take toilet paper and add  a little water and just erase it.

Step 5: Do What You Want

So now after you have read this tutorial I hope you go out and make your own. When you are finished, do what ever you used to do but this time with a whiteboard.

If you have any suggestion for what I should make next time, go ahead and post a commet!
