I bought this stuff, at least, 5 years ago with money from our School Advisory Committee.
Well, the elementary school I work in is being renovated. We pretty much found this out with less then 4 months of school left. That was in February, 2013. Had I gotten more notice I would have had a whole lot less to pack. Translation-I WOULD HAVE MADE EVERY EFFORT TO USE STUFF UP! So that I would have less to move. Okay, maybe not............
Henceforth, I REALLY needed to use this stuff and NOT move IT back.
Needing a print project for 4th and 5th graders and a lesson I wanted to use involving logos, I thought let's use this scratch a print thingie! Students were shown a power point which focused on what a graphic artist does and the importance of using a logo to brand a product. They were given newsprint paper with directions to fold paper into four sections and come up with four different logos. Logos must contain letters and an image. You may brand yourself or a company you would like to have when you grow up.
The frame was taped to their chosen design, they proceeded to scratch and voilá!
Flutter Fin Soaps. That's her mom who was there to help her out!
Anyway, since I have yet to figure out how to add a gadget to my blog (I'm working on it) here's the link to my store at Teachers Pay Teachers. Currently featuring a free list of suggested art centers.
Thanks for reading!
