|I stayed after school to grade rock collections...|
But, then the memories of projects that I did in school, are always memories of the projects where I "knocked the ball out of the park for a home run". It's easy to forget all of the disasters. I'm not sure that I worried too much about what the other kids were doing, as a child. My elementary school was a hotbed of project learning, back in the 1970's. It was right up my alley.
Last week, we turned in our Native Californian coiled baskets. I didn't have a chance to take many pictures of them, but will do so before I return them to the students. Right now, they are on display in our classroom. It's fun to watch kids learn and grow. And, it's fun to vicariously feel their pride in a job well done.
