Hi Guys and Gals,
I teach Wood Technology to high school students in New Hampshire.
I have to have knee surgery next week and will be out at least 2 weeks.
1 week will be our April vacation week, but, I need ideas for the following week. I have a Woods 1 class, a Woods II class, and also a Woods III class. We do most of our bookwork in the first quarter of the semester, so what do I do now? Any suggestions? The kids will not be allowed to work in the shop.

Thanks, Tom
MrsN

I have a set of article packets that are my go to sub thing. They are an article from a woodworking magazine, and a bunch of questions. Some questions are comprehension type things (what material is used) some questions are a little more thought provoking. They also have to fill out a bill of materials and answer some questions about changes to the plan. (if they used plywood instead of solid wood what would the cost be)
If you send me an email I will send you a few of mine nielsenkNOSPAM@prescott.k12.wi.us

Check out the Currier's site. They have a lot of pictures of decorative art and furniture. You might be able to create a worksheet from their collection.

From those of you not in NH - The Currier is a private museum in Manchester, NH.

another thing that might have potential would be some sort of design critique. A website like http://design-milk.com/ has "weird-artsy-modern-designer" furniture. Find a piece or two and have kids defend their view point of "is this designed well" "which one is better". you could also do a "how would you build it" type question.

Thanks, MrsN and Jack!
Appreciate the help. Both are good ideas, I'll check into them in the AM.
