This Week in the Classroom: Squiggle ‘Bots

Here’s a line on what pre-school should be – I actually thought I invented this project a few years ago when I worked with primary school-age kids in VA.  Obviously, I did not – it’s just rumblin’ around out there in the knowledge sphere.

Teacher Tom goes into some of the skills those little guys learn, but I love building these things out of paper cups, markers and hot glue.  Even though the hot glue can get dangerous, I find this project is simple enough that the kids learn to use and respect the tool without having a tricky joint to make which will get them burned.

I can’t say enough good things about Teacher Tom’s blog either.
