What is the link between fretworks with our comenius project???
These all fretworks are to teach and to control our pupil’s “eye-hand coordinations” and “to impress their insight materials ” …. The idea that the link of fretworks and our project them is; if the pupils can learn the people who use what kind of wood materials in their daily life and if we teach wood cutting techniques at their education process to pupils, by this way they can use these techniques at their working life…If they produce these wood productions which are table napkin, bread box, candlestick, key holder etc…they can sell them who wants to buy…They can sell these wood productions and earn money, money and money
