Building Snowmen for the Holiday Season

Building Snowmen for the Holiday Season

In celebration of the holiday season, first-graders from Sylvan Avenue Elementary School collaborated with James Wilson Young Middle School students in the James Wilson Young Middle School’s technology room for a festive woodworking project.

To begin the project, the middle school students used their measuring skills to line up the height of their first-grade partners next to a large slab of wood. With the proper safety gear and precautions equipped, the students then received assistance from technology instructors Robert Donarummo and Iain Zambri as they cut the wood in the marked location based on the students’ height. The students then worked together to apply a thin layer of white paint to all surfaces of the wood.

With their completed wood planks on hand, the first-grade students are going to build a large snowman which will be displayed in the lobby of Sylvan Avenue Elementary School later on this month.
