GUIDED PRACTICE: Help the students finish the construction of their flats. If they are finished, or finish early, have them work on other current set needs, study for their quiz, or help other students. Make sure they clean up their area once they are finished.


The practical quiz will be on tools. Present each student with a group of 5-6 tools and record the names and uses of each of the tools in their group.
The written quiz will be on safety rules. Have them turn in both quizzes at the end of class.




Students can be assessed through their finished project and the completion of the oral and written quizzes
