What's New On The Language Shelf?

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.
Also I put some rice paper on the shelf. Cool stuff,  if you ever want to embellish your writing this is the paper to use. Of course we will talk about how this paper really isn't made from rice and who invented this paper.
 Here is their stash of soaked recycled paper ready to get going. Through trial and error they will come to appreciate how far the advancement of making paper has come.

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.
                    A close up of the supplies.
