Sometimes I can't leave well enough alone! When I get a vision I can't just let it sit I have to put it into action! One of the things that came to me while I was resting my mind was what work could get the kids wanting to dig deeper into learning more about the story of writing.
I begin to look through my stash of things and found our Paper Making Machine.
Included in the instructions for making paper is a brief history of paper, just enough information that would get them researching.
I also found a telegraph kit at the Teacher's Store.
This work includes a great deal of information on the history of the Morse Code. This one involves a lot of following directions and putting those learned practical skills in action.
