7th and 8th Grade Art

The students are progressing nicely on the bird house construction. They are learning several new techniques in the Maker Space and are gaining confidence using the power tools. We had an amazing donation to the Maker Space (thank you Mr. Bendlak) consisting of several planks of pine, a jigsaw and a chop saw. This helped move the construction of the project on much faster. We now have 3 powered hand held saws to help alleviate the wait time for tools. The students are quickly learning the importance of a clear plan, measure twice and cut once and are excited at their progress. I imagine we still have a couple of weeks in the shop until all the cuts are made.
