How did this project connect to your local or regional community?
What PBE principles were highlighted in this project?
Students worked in teams on this hands-on, wood shop project. Our theater program needed 8 boxes on stage for the entire year, leading up to a culminating May performance. The boxes are used to store things, step on, and serve as props on stage. Students marked, measured, used power saws to cut, assembled, and painted the 19″, five-sided cubes. It was also a fun, learner-centered art project as each student painted an image that reflects themselves onto one side of the cubes.
How did this positively impact the community? How was it shared?
Reflection: What was the biggest challenge? What was the most rewarding aspect of this project?
