Sometimes it’s not the destination that matters, it’s the journey. In our instant, bells-and-whistles, digital world it’s nice to give students an experience of something new, something hands on, something that requires patience and care. This is an activity that I’ve been doing for a few years and it’s one that carries so many benefits with it. We made a wooden photo block for Fathers’ Day (it was supposed to be for Mothers’ Day but Covid came along…) and it gave the students quite a few new experiences such as sawing and sanding wood, spraying lacquer and manipulating digital images. While the results were great, the major focus was simply to give the students a fun activity and a few new experiences. Check out the images below.
