Truth is... one of my favorite things about teaching is that I can often combine the things I love most - kids, science, and all-things-crafty - to make my day fun, interesting and happy. People often think crafty projects are too "grade-school" for the kids in high school, but let me tell you, there are times that the high school kids love to be crafty just as much as I do! I love seeing how crafty projects bring out the light in students that are otherwise hard to reach. I love to allow my students to express themselves artistically. It's especially wonderful when a student who has been struggling to learn science SHINES when focused on something visual and crafty.
Starting today there's a giveaway of one of my favorite products - Divine Twine. Its fancy enough to bring a little special zing to a project, but inexpensive enough to use in classroom quantity. I have spools this size in about 20 different colors, and I use it all the time. Click here to go to the Giveaway registration page!
