This week I reflect on my manual labor weekend helping my wife flip a house north of Seattle. I woke up sore, tired and excited. Why? Why is doing stuff so much fun? How can we have students make more stuff?
- Where did I learn how to do all this?
- Why is manual labor so much fun?
- Why did I sleep so well?
- Find a way to have your students make something physical. Give them the challenge to build a tower, a bridge, a wagon for the Oregon Trail out of popsicle sticks. There is so much learning and feeling of accomplishments when we do manual labor and we get to see our progress.
- Find a way to bring movement into your classroom. Find a way to get students up and moving!
