In the Classroom: Tic-Tac-Toe

In Burnsville Elementary School, kindergarten students complete a unit of study on tools, so Anne Phillips got creative and helped students use the tools to make a Tic-Tac-Toe board.  Each student measured and cut a pine board to the right length.  Some students used a hand saw and some students used a jig saw.  Students then marked the 9 places on their board to put their screws.  Each student drilled 9 screws in a grid pattern – this was the actual Tic-Tac-Toe board.  They nailed 2 nails in place – one to hold the red washers, and one to hold the silver washers.  When they were done with this 1/2 day project they had a Tic-Tac-Toe board and a real understanding of the tools they had studied.
