As the woodshop teacher I am so excited to be able to offer this class to our students. It not only gives them an outlet for creativity and real world skills but contributes to and compliments the other subjects they are learning.
When you think of lower elementary, you might think of classes full of fun games and silly songs, but our lower elementary has much more than that. Our lessons, while fun do more than just teach one subject, but branch out between subjects and life skills.
It is really hard to transport students back in time to learn from their ancestors and their predecessors without a time machine.
