Hot glue guns, pruning shears, and sticks…
What could go wrong?
Keeping with our yearlong theme of Hogwarts and our reading of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Division 4 (Grade 4/5) made their wands during Library class.
The students chopped off all unwanted protrusions from their sticks (no fingers were lost) and used hot glue to create handles and decorations. Gemstones, beads, and wires were also used; the library floor sparkled all day long from the jewels that managed to roll away from the students.
I can’t wait to bring the finished wands to school tomorrow. We will be creating unique spells and dueling – I can’t wait!
