Tools in use

The children have been working with a wide variety of tools.  

In math class, the children used stencils to make shapes and tried measuring using rulers and yard sticks.  When trying to measure large objects, they preferred to use many rulers and yard sticks rather than continually have to move one.

Some other tools the children have worked with are plumb bobs, levels, broom, chalk lines, hammers, and nail sets.
