Hooray! This project is fully funded
Do you remember that project you made in your first wood shop or metal shop class? That project that you kept for years because....well you made it. That is what our students want to do!
When our school decided to expand the variety and amount of enrichment courses offered to students, almost half of the returning 6th and 7th graders wanted to sign-up for an Introductory Woodworking course.
Our students wanted the opportunity to learn new skills, they want to build and create memories.
Many of my students have never had the opportunity to work with tools and wood to build a product. Students want to have engaging and hands on learning experiences. This project will allow more students to be engaged by having the tools necessary to learn basic steps of the woodworking process.
Whether making straight cross-cuts or cutting angles, students will be able to use the mitre saw to make the precision cuts they need to create quality and enduring woodworking products.
The students will learn how to cut boards at various angles, applying mathematical concepts to their woodworking. With the sanders and sandpaper, students will learn about the different grits of sandpaper and how to use those grits, to take lumber from a rough finish to the fine finish of a quality product.
Whether it helping with a future career skills or building skills for personal development, help my students learn how to make and build different wood projects.
