Sunnyside Playground

Kids’ Woodworking

Kids’ Woodworking students are excited to use equipment and tools in our well-equipped woodshop. They create their own projects from raw materials. Kids build skills, such as how to safely use tools. They apply their school mathematics in a practical application, discovering the importance of taking time to measure accurately. They will practice their skills with an inch ruler; learn how to get precise lines using squares, and clamp their wood for cutting with hand saws. They’ll learn how to use hand tools and some power tools. Working in a fun and supportive atmosphere, students also practice problem solving mistakes so they can successfully complete their projects.
