STEM GIRLS

South Burnett Times - - SOUTH BURNETT SCHOOL NEWS -

DUR­ING term four 12 girls from Year 5/ 6 have been mak­ing jewellery boxes with Mr Crow­ley.

We started with learn­ing about safety rules for when we use ma­chin­ery and sharp tools. We then learnt how to ham­mer nails into wood and to use glue to stick our pieces of wood to­gether.

The wood for the sides of the jewellery box was joined to­gether like a jig­saw puz­zle with the dove­tail joins and glue.

We sanded the sides to get rid of the left­over wood to make the cor­ners smooth and flat.

We used the belt san­der to sand the wood for the base so that it fit­ted prop­erly.

Next week we will be putting felt in and then fin­ish off with mak­ing a lid with a fancy han­dle. Af­ter var­nish­ing our jewellery box we will be tak­ing it home.

Our class has had a fun time mak­ing our jewellery boxes and trucks. — By Stephanie and Lilly
