I have been trying to do more project based learning this year and it has been a little frustrating to say the least. It is a little bit of chaos and I feel like I am not teaching as I should be. This past week we spent everyday in prealgebra working on making lanterns and it felt disastrous until Friday. Finally, on Friday, a few of our lantern skeletons started to come together and it is making me realize it is actually worth it!
They look a little rough right now but that seems to be what happens when you give a 7th grade boy a glue gun. They will cover the sides with tissue paper so it will cover all the glue chunks in the end.
