  • 1. Drawing
and
Cutting
Out
My
Clover
Key
Tag
Marley
Emerich






February
17th
 Today
I
began
making
my
four‐leaf
clover
key
tag.
I
chose
a
piece
of
a
green
translucent
plastic
for
my
design.
I
began
with
thinking
in
my
head
what
I
was
going
to
do.
It
took
many
tries
but
I
drew
the
four‐leaf
clover
over
and
over
again
on
the
plastic
with
a
whiteboard
marker.
I
kept
on
making
to
too
big
or
too
small,
so
I
just
drew
the
V‐shaped
spaces
in
between
the
leaves
and
 decided
that
I’d
round
the
edges
in
after
I
sanded
 and
sawed
out
everything.
 I
went
and
put
my
apron
on
to
protect
me
from
 sharp
edges
and
to
protect
my
clothes
from
dust.
I
 also
made
sure
to
put
my
hair
up
so
it
didn’t
get
 chopped
off
or
caught
in
anything.
I
didn’t
put
my
 safety
goggles
because
I
wasn’t
using
wood
and
I
 thought
plastic
dust
wouldn’t
affect
me
as
much.
 I
then
placed
the
piece
of
plastic
into
the
metal
 clamp.
I
picked
up
the
“Junior
Hack
Saw”
and
slowly
 began
carving
out
the
V’s.
At
Oirst,
I
was
going
way
to
slow
and
I
didn’t
realize
I
was
cutting
the
V
in
a
straight
angle.
After
much
practice
with
positioning
my
self
right,
I
Oinally
got
it
right.
I
proceeded
to
do
this
in
two
more
V’s
after
this.
When
I
took
the
plastic
out
or
redraw
the
lines,
I
noticed
that
they
were
a
bit
too
wide.
Although,
I
couldn’t
change
anything
after
that
so
I
asked
and
was
told
that
next
time
I
shouldn’t
make
them
that
wide
but
it
would
be
alright.
I
examined
my
piece;
I
was
overall
pleased
with
it.
It
is
my
Oirst
ever
DT
project,
and
I
felt
quite
positive
about
the
results
so
far. After
that,
I
cleaned
up
my
station
by
sweeping
all
the
dust
of
into
the
bin,
putting
my
apron
up,
and
putting
all
my
tools
away
in
the
appropriate
places.

AOI
‐
Enviroment
 It
would
be
a
good
idea
to
shorten
the
amount
of
wood
we
use
because
I’m
thinking
that
we
are
using
too
much
and
it’s
bad
for
the
environment.

  • 2. What
I
did: Today
I
walked
into
the
 studio
and
 Figure
1
­
got
out
my
clover.
I
began
with
 Junior
Hack
 putting
on
my
apron
to
endure
I
wouldn’t
 Saw get
any
dust
on
my
clothes
and
to
protect
me
 from
any
sharp
objects
that
I
might
come
 across.
Then,
I
put
my
hair
up
to
make
sure
it
 didn’t
get
 caught
in
any
machine
or
 get
cut
off.
 After
I
made
sure
I
was
ready,
I
took
out
my
 clover
piece
and
inserted
it
in
the
metal
clamp
 so
I
could
cut
out
my
last
two
V’s.
I
chose
the
 “Junior
Hack
Saw”
for
this
because
my
clover
 is
plastic.
I
began
cutting
out
one
of
the
V’s,
 but
I
was
told
I
was
cutting
at
an
angle.
After
 some
feedback,
I
Oinally
Oinished
cutting
out
 one
V,
and
then
I
cut
out
the
other.
 After
I
Oinished
cutting
out
V’s,
I
began
rounding
out
all
the
edges
with
a
half‐round
Oile.
I
had
trouble
at
Oirst,
so
I
asked.
I
then
proceeded
to
Oile
each
and
every
end
and
corner.
After
the
rest
of
the
class
Oilling
and
rounding,
my
clover
looked
almost
like
a
real
clover!Emotion:
 I
felt
very,
very
positive
about
today.
I
really
put
a
lot
of
effort
and
concentration
on
rounding.
I
made
immense
progress
during
today’s
lesson
because
my
key
tag
went
from
looking
like
and
X
to
looking
like
an
almost
clover.

think
that
I
am
an
Approacher
to
Learning
because
this
is
one
of
my
Oirst
D.T.
classes
in
school
and
therefore
everything
I
am
doing
is
a
new
experience.I
was
a
risk
taker
because
I
have
never
used
a
half
round
Oile
and
this
was
a
new
experience.

BufferWhat
I
Did: Today
I
did
many
things.
The
Oirst
thing
I
did
was
put
my
apron
on
to
protect
me
from
sharp
edges
and
to
protect
my
clothes
from
dust.
I
also
made
sure
to
put

up
so
it
didn’t
get
chopped

or

I

  • 5. didn’t
put
my
safety
goggles
because
I
wasn’t
using
wood
and
I
thought
plastic
dust
wouldn’t
affect
me
as
much.
 Then,
I
got
out
the
small
half‐round
Oile
and
began
to
smooth
out
the
more
jagged
edges
of
my
clover.
I
spent
about
ten
to
Oifteen
minutes
doing
this.
After
I
checked
with
the
teacher,
I
started
doing
it
again
because
the
half‐round
Oile
I
had
wasn’t
working
correctly.
After
doing
it
again
for
around
the
same
amount
of
time,
I
Oinally
Oiled
my
edges
correctly.
 After
 rounding
out
the
edges,
I
gave
the
 plastic
tot
the
teacher
and
he
 buffed
the
plastic’s
edges
for
 me.
When
it
came
out,
my
four‐leaf
 clover
looked
clean,
sleek,
and
 very
professional.
Almost
all
of
the
 plastic
was
completely
 translucent,
and
the
plastic
paper
 on
top
was
almost
completely
gone. I
then
 proceeded
to
draw
the
location
 of
my
keyhole
in
the
corner.
I
checked
with
the
teacher
and
then
positioned
my
clover
under
the
drill
in
the
clamp.
I
put
on
my
safety
glasses
to
ensure
I
wouldn’t
get
anything
on
my
clothes
or
any
dust
in
my
eyes.
I
made
sure
to
put
my
hand
on
the
clamp,
but
nowhere
near
the
drill
so
I
didn’t
hurt
myself.
I
moved
the
platform
up
so
the
drill
was
near
the
clover.
I
pressed
the
green
button
to
turn
the
drill
on
and
lowered
it
very
slowly.
I
watched
carefully
as
the
drill
went
through
the
plastic,
watching
for
wooden
chips
to
tell
me
to
stop.
When
I
Oinished,
I
turned
off
the
drill,
took
off
my
glasses,
and
very
carefully
to
my
clover
out.
 I
removed
the
plastic
from
the
clamp
and
took
off
all
the
remaining
plastic.
I
cleaned
off
my
clover
and
decided
it
would
look
more
like
a
clover
if
I
added
a
little
center
to
it. I
practiced
engraving
the
center
on
wood
and
plastic
more
than
once.
I
Oinally
got
it
right
and
engraved
it
on
my
clover.
Finally
I
added
the
key
chain
to
the
hole
and
I
Oinished!
I
put
all
my
tools
and
apron
away
and
was
done!Why?
  • 6. The
reason
I
rounded
the
edges
to
my
clover
with
a
small
“Half‐round”
Oile
was
because
some
of
the
edges
were
a
bit
sharp
and
if
I
had
kept
it
like
that,
when
its
on
my
keys,
it
might
tear
up
my
jeans
or
possibly
poke
myself.

 The
reason
I
buffed
the
edges
of
my
clover
was
so
I
could
give
it
a
more
professional
and
clean
look.
Also,
the
reason
why
I
engraved
the
small
hole
in
the
clover
was
to
give
it
more
of
a
shape
and
look.Emotion:
I
felt
very
positive
about
my
clover
in
the
end.
I
would’ve
liked
it
to
look
more
round
and
not
as
wide
and
long,
but
in
the
end
I
felt
I
did
the
best
I
could’ve
done
with
what
I
had.
I
put
a
lot
of
effort
into
this
clover
because
it
was
my
very
Oirst
design
technology
project
and
I
felt
that
it
was
quite
good
for
a
Oirst
time.What’s
Next?Because
I’m
done
with
this
project,
I
will
be
deciding
what
to
do
with
it
now.
Because
I
tend
to
lose
my
keys
for
my
house
and
locker
all
the
time.
I
will
but
both
keys
on
the
chain
for
good
luck.
I
will
be
careful
not
to
overuse
it
our
move
it
in
my
pocket
a
lot
because
I
don’t
want
or
ruin
or
scratch
the
plastic.
AOI

ProMileI
think
that
I
am
an
Approacher
to
Learning
because
this
is
one
of
my
Oirst
D.T.
classes
in
school
and
therefore
everything
I
am
doing
is
a
new
experience.I
was
a
risk
taker
and
knowledgeable
because
I
used
new
tools
like
the
“Pedestal
Drill”
and
the
engraver.
I
was
knowledgeable
because
I
used
the
little
knowledge
of
rounding
that
I
had
before
to
help
my
clover
get
its
shape.

  • 7. Drawing
and
Starting
to
Cut
Out
the
Shape
of
My
Toy
Whale
 Wednesday,
March
23,
2011These
are
the
tools
I
used
today:I
used
a
tenon
saw
to
cut
long
strokes
of
wood
instead
of
short
pieces. I
used
the
gent
saw
to
cut
shorter
or
 
 



smaller
pieces
of
wood.What
I
did: Today
we
began
or
moving
toy
project.
We
Oirst
started
off
by
reading
two
worksheets
about
different
woods
ant
tools
used
to
cut
and
shape
them.
These
worksheets
help
me
brainstorm
and
get
an
idea
of
what
I
should
be
doing
when
in
the
workshop.
We
then
went
over
what
tools
to
use
for
our
project
and
how
to
use
them.
We
were
told
and
showed
how
to
use
a
coping
saw
correctly
which
was
very
useful
because
I’ve
never
used
a
coping
saw
before
and
they
are
very
fragile.
After
we
made
sure
we
knew
how
to
use
the
different
drills
and
saws,
we
learned
about
the
types
of
woods
we
had,
hardwood
and
softwood.
The
softwood
boards
were
very
tall
and
wide
but
not
very
thick
and
they
are
easy
to
cut.
Hardwood
boards
are
harder
to
cut,
shorter,
and
a
lot
thicker.


  • 8. We
then
got
to
work.
 Today
I
did
many
 things.
The
Oirst
thing
I
did
was
put
my
apron
 on
to
protect
me
from
sharp
edges
and
to
 protect
my
clothes
from
dust.
I
also
made
sure
to
 put
my
hair
up
so
it
didn’t
get
chopped
off
 or
caught
in
anything.
I
didn’t
put
my
safety
 goggles
because
I
wasn’t
using
a
drill
or
anything
 that
shed
a
lot
of
dust
in
the
air
so
I
thought
it
 wouldn’t
affect
me
as
much.
I
then
looked
at
 both
woods,
thinking
about
which
wood
is
best
for
my
whale.
I
ended
up
choosing
the
long,
thinner,
and
wider
softwood.
I
then
opened
the
metal
clamp
and
began
drawing
my
whale’s
body
and
water
spout
on
the
wood.
 
Drawing
the
shape
of
the
whales
body
on
the
 wood. After
I
drew
the
whale
on,
I
made
sure
it
was
okay
 with
the
teacher
and
then
drew
lines
around
the
 round
shaped
(the
tail
and
spout)
so
I
could
later
use
 a
coping
saw
to
cut
out
the
curves.
Then,
I
used
a
tri‐square
to
Oinish
 drawing
equal
and
exactly
90
degree
lines
on
both
sides
 of
the
wood.
These
would
be
the
chunks
or
blocks
of
 wood
I
would
cut
out
because
they
were
not
 needed.
I
made
sure
that
on
both
sides,
the
lines
 were
identical
and
then
I
put
the
piece
of
wood
in
 the
clamp
and
began
to
cut
the
pieces
off.
In
the
last
apart
of
the
lesson,
I
began
cutting
off
the
chunks
of
wood
that
I
didn’t
need.
This
cutting
also
gave
a
most
of
the
shape
to
the
toy.
I
didn’t
get
to
Oinish
cutting
the
pieces
off,
but
I
got
most
of
it.
After
this
I
took
off
my
apron,
put
my
tools
away,
and
cleaned
up
my
station.Why?
  • 9. I
chose
the
long
but
not
thick
piece
softwood
instead
of
the
thick
and
short
hardwood
 because
the
 longer
wood
is
 more
ideal
for
 shape.
I
don’t
 want
my
whale
 to
look
 squished
or
 distorted,
even
 if
the
thickness
was
ideal.
That’s
why
I
chose
 the
long
wood
instead,
because
my
whale
will
look
better.I
used
the
tenon
saw
to
cut
the
big
portions
of
wood
because
the
tenon

saw
is
stronger
and
longer
and
cuts
longer
pieces
of
wood
better.
I
chose
the
gents
saw
for
the
shorter
pieces
of
wood
because
it’s
smaller
and
easier
to
control
for
a
small
amount
of
wood.
What’s
Next?Next
class,
I
will
try
to
Oinish
cutting
out
the
shape
of
my
whale.
First,
I
will
Oinish
cutting
off
the
chunk
of
wood
I
don’t
need.
After
that
I
will
more
or
less
have
the
body
rough
body
shape
besides
the
tail
and
spout.
M
next
job
is
to
use
the
coping
saw
to
cut
out
these
round
edges.
This
is
what
I
anticipate
I
will
get
done
in
the
next
lesson.
After
that,
comes
sanding
and
rounding
and
eventually
the
wheels
and
axels,
holes
for
them,
trail
assembly,
and
paint.Emotion:I
felt
okay
about
today’s
lesson.
Considering
we
just
started
I
think
I
did
pretty
good,
but
I
had
some
trouble
as
usual
with
cutting
out
the
shape
of
the
whale.
I
cut
a
little
too
close
to
the
line
and
it
was
a
bit
crooked
at
Oirst
but
I
Oixed
it
later.
I
did
feel
better
than
I
did
about
the
cutting
than
the
clover
project

  • 10. though,
because
I
didn’t
completely
mess
everything
up
and
I
cut
in
a
straight
line
this
time.
Overall,
I
felt
ok
about
today’s
lesson.AOI
&
Learner
ProMileI
was
a
risk
taker
because
I
used
tools
and
materials
I’ve
never
used
before.Continuing
to

Out
the
Shape
of
My
Whale
Toy
Thursday,
March
24th
2011What
I
did:
  • 11. 
Tenon
saw.
I
used
this
to
cut
out
the
body
of
my
 whale.
 Today
we
continued
working
on
our
moving
toy
project.
 The
Oirst
thing
I
did
was
put
my
apron
on
to
protect
me
 from
sharp
edges
and
to
protect
my
clothes
from
dust.
I
 also
made
sure
to
put
my
hair
up
so
it
didn’t
get
chopped
off
or
caught
in
anything.
I
didn’t

I
wasn’t

or
anything
that
shed
a

so
I
thought
it
wouldn’t
affect
me
as
much.
 Then
I
took
out
my
piece
of
hardwood
and
positioned
it
in
the
holding
clamp
so
I
could
Oinish
using
the
tendon
saw
to
cut
one
of
the
unnecessary
straight
pieces
off.
 After
I
Oinished
that,
I
 put
away
the
tenon
 saw
and
checked
 with
the
 teacher.

But,
instead
of
 just

I
drew
straight

I
 wouldn’t

to

to
cut
the
small
 lines
near
the
round
edges of
wood
in
 the
 wooden
vice
so
the
Oirst
line
I
need
to
cut
it
standing
straight
up.
Once,
I
made
sure
the
wooden
vice
was
tight,
I
then
began
cutting
slowly
with
the
gents
saw.
I
frequently
checked
to
line
to
make4
sure
the
line
wasn’t
cutting
sideways.
I
got
about
¼
of
the
job
done
until
it
was
time
to
pack
up.

  • 12. I
put
my
apron
away
and
put
up
my
tools.
I
then
re‐wrote
my
name
on
my
piece
of
wood
and
put
I
tin
the
Grade
8
Moving
Toy
project
box.
Finally,
I
cleaned
dup
my
station
and
made
sure
everything
was
in
order.
Why? I
used
a
tenon
saw
to
cut
the
longer
piece
of
wood
in
the
beginning
of
the
lesson
because
a
tenon
saw
is
larger
and
will
cut
longer
pieces
of
wood
a
lot
faster.
I
drew
the
straight
lines
to
cut
out
near
the
round
edges
of
my
whale
shape
so
I
wouldn’t
have
to
cut
out
so
many
rounder
edges.
I
cut
the
shorter
pieces
of
wood
around
the
round
edges
with
a
gents
saw
instead
of
a
tenon
saw
because
a
gents
saw
is
easier
to
maneuver
with
smaller
pieces.
What’s
Next?
 Because
I
have
two
periods
in
the
next
lesson,
I
plan
to
Oinish
cutting
out
the
small
pieces
of
wood
near
the
round
edges
with
a
gents
saw.
I
also
plan
getting
a
good
amount
of
cutting
the
round
edges
with
a
coping
saw
done.
Although,
because
this
would
be
my
Oirst
time
using
a
coping
saw
and
the
fact
that
it’s
a
slow
process
and
they
are
very
delicate,
it
might
take
longer
than
tomorrow’s
two
periods.
Although,
I
think
I
can
get
it
done.
Emotion I
felt
pretty
good
about
today’s
lesson.
I
Oinished
cutting
some
big
parts
of
the
whale
out;
giving
it
it’s
shape.
I
also
began
cutting
out
yet
another
part
of
the
whale’s
body.
So,
I
did
get
a
good
amount
done
in
only
one
period
and
I
felt
I
did
it
well.
In
summary,
I
felt
very
good
about
today’s
lesson.

Out
the
Body
of
My
WhaleMonday,
March

2011What
I
Did: 
 Today
I
 continued
working
on
cutting
out
my
whale
 for
my
animal
moving
toy
project.
The
Oirst
 thing
I
did
was
put
my
apron
on
to
protect
me
 from
sharp
edges
and
to
protect
my
clothes
from
 dust.
I
also
made
sure
to
put
my
hair
up
so
it
 didn’t
get
chopped
off
or
caught
in
anything.
I
 didn’t
put
my
safety
goggles
because
I
wasn’t
 using
a
drill
or
anything
 that
shed
a
lot
of
dust
in

so
I
thought
it
wouldn’t

extra
small
 pieces

I
Oirst
cut
out
the
piece
of
my
body
that
I
still
needed
 to
get
off.
This
part
of
the
process
was
very
time
 consuming.
I
had
to
cut
pieces
of
wood
off
where
 there
were
some
lines.
The
problem
was,
I
needed
to
 turn
the
piece
of
wood
so
it
wasn’t
standing
sideways
but
up
straight
on
the
wooden
vice.
I
then
began
cutting
with
a
gents
saw.
I
had
some
issues
because
I
didn’t
want
to
cut
a
sideways
or
crooked
line.
Also,
I
had
to
constantly
change
the
position
of
the
wood
in
the
wooden
vice
because
I
had
to
cut
different
lines.

This
was
my
Oirst
time
using
a

  • 15. coping
saw
so
I
began
to
cut
the
easier
edges
very
slowly
and
softly.
I
moved
my
body
as
the
teacher
said
so
the
saw
would
move
as
well,
creating
a
rounder
shape.
Although,
I
didn’t
Oinish
the
whole
thing
because
the
lesson
ended.
I
began
using
the
coping
saw,
but
I
didn’t
Oinish
the
whole
thing.
 I
put
my
apron
away
and
put
up
my
tools.

then
re‐wrote
my
name
on
my
piece

wood

 
Using
a

to

out

round
 edges
of

whale’s
body.
Why? I
used
a
gents
saw
to
cut
the
shorter
and
smaller
pieces
of
wood
in
the
beginning
of
the
lesson
because
a
gents
saw
is
smaller
and
easier
to
control
when
cutting
short
pieces.
I
drew
the
straight
lines
to
cut
out
near
the
round
edges
of
my
whale
shape
so
I
wouldn’t
have
to
cut
out
so
many
round
edges.
I
positioned
the
piece
of
hardwood
in
the
wooden
vice
in
different
positions
with
the
drawn
lines
facing
straight
so
I
wouldn’t
have
to
cut
side
ways.
I
used
a
coping
saw
to
cut
the
round
edges
because
a
coping
saw
can
cut
in
curves
that
can
later
be
sanded
and
smoothed.
What’s
Next?
 Because
I
have
a
double
period
in
the
next
lesson,
I
plan
on
getting
most,
if
not
all
of
the
whale’s
shape
done.
I
plan
on
cutting
out
all
of
the
round
edges

a
coping

and
then
using
a
disc
sander
to
round
out
the
edges.
Although,
because
of
my
little
experience
with
a
coping
saw
I
might
not
be
able
to
Oinish
everything
I
want
in
a
day.
For
example,
I
may
just
Oinish
cutting
and
not
sanding.
I
don’t
think
I’d
get
farther
then
that,
in
which
case
would
be
Oiling
the
edges
a
disc
sander
can’t
get
to
in
order
to
make
the
edges
round.
This
will
give
the
whale
a
Oinal
shape
and
will
make
it
safer
for
children.Emotion:
 Even
though
I
messed
up
a
bit
with
cutting,
I
felt
good
about
today’s
lesson
because
I
Oinished
cutting
out
the
general
shape
of
the
body.
I
felt
like
I’m
on
track
and
I’m
doing
well
so
far.
I’m
a
bit
nervous
about
using
a
coping
saw
because
I’ve
never
used
on
before,
but
I
think
that
with
good
guidance
and
a
bit
of
practice
I’ll
do

I

so
the
drawn
lines
on
the
hardwood
 were
facing
parallel
to
the
table.
 
This
is

I
put

piece
of
wood
in
there
 to
cut.
 I
began
cutting
with

coping
saw
down
the
line.
This
 was
a
very
new
experience
for
me
because
I’ve
never
used
 a
coping
saw
before.
I
cut
slowly
and
hard
down
the
curves.
The
shape
was
between
the
tail
and
body
so
it
looked
like
a
teardrop.
This
was
a
very
hard
shape
to
cut
out
because
it’s
so
small
and
at
odd
angles.
I
got
the
right
side
done
easily
and
some
of
the
left.
But
as
I
cut
out
the
left
side,

learned
how
much
pressure
to
apply
to

how
fast

This
will
help
me
in

lesson
with
Oinishing
 one
oval
shaped
space
in
between
the
 waterspout
and
starting
the

one
with
 my
coping
saw.
I
had
to
get
some
help
 form
the

though.
In
the

I
had
no
trouble
because

are

project
box.
Finally,
I
cleaned
up
my
station
and
made
sure
everything
was
in
order.
Why?
  • 19. I
used
a
coping
saw
most
of
the
day
because
a
coping
saw
is
made
especially
for
cutting
round
or
curved
edges
and
shapes.
Most
of
what
I
was
required
to
cut
today
was
round
or
curved.
I
used
a
pull
saw
the
one
time
I
needed
to
cut
out
a
small
piece
for
two
reasons.
One,
a
pull
saw
can
cut
pieces
really
fast
and
I
needed
to
cut
it
fast
because
I
had
limited
time
and
it’s
a
small
piece
so
I
wanted
to
cut
it
off
and
not
spend
too
much
time
on
it.
Two,
I
tried
using
a
gents
saw,
but
the
“spine”
of
the
saw
didn’t
go
as
low
as
the
wood
was
and
I
didn’t
want
to
move
it
in
the
wooden
vice
because
it
was
in
the
perfect
angle
for
the
coping
saw.
Emotion I
should
have
felt
good
about
today
because
I
got
a
lot
done.
I
got
almost
all
my
curved
edges
done
except
2/4
of
the
last
one.
I
also
should
be
happy
knowing
I
don’t
have
that
much
Oiling
ahead
of
me.
Although,
there
were
three
things
that
got
me
down
today.
One,
I
was
really
careful
and
precise;
yet
I
still
broke
my
coping
saw
on
the
Oirst
day
I
really
used
it.
Two,
I
messed
up
and
needed
a
lot
of
help
with
my
work
today,
which
I
wasn’t
too
happy
with.
Finally,
I
realized
that
I’m
the
only
one
still
cutting
out
the
shape
while
everyone
else
is
Oiling
their
toy.
Overall,
I
wasn’t
really
happy
with
today.
What’s
Next?
 I
Oinished
most
of
the
coping
saw
cutting
like
I
thought
I
would.
In
the
next
class
I
will
deOinitely
Oinish
the
last
round
edge
in
between
the
spout.
I
will
use
a
disc
sander
to
round
and
smooth
the
edges.
I
will
then
have
to
Oile
the
rest
of
the
edges
that
the
disc
sander
couldn’t
get
to
along
with
the
edges
of
my
shape.
This
all
I
can
get
done
in
one
period.
I
think
that
I
will
start
but
not
Oinish
my
Oiling.
After
that,
comes

the

in

process.
First,
I
put
my

on
to
protect
me
from
sharp
edges
and
to
protect

also

if
I
dropped
anything
 heavy
or
a
sharp
objects
on
my
feet,
it
 wouldn’t
affect
me
that
badly.
 
A
wooden

I
placed
my
whale’s
body
 here
so
I
can
cut
or
Cile
it
without
it
moving
 and
at
different
angles.
 I
opened
the
wooden
vice
and
placed
my
 whale’s
(hardwood)
body
inside.
I
used
a
 coping
saw
to
cut
off
some
easy
edges
that
I
 wouldn’t
be
able
to
round
out
with
the
disc
sander.
These
were
the
edges
around
the
thinner
parts
of
the
whale’s
shape
like
the
waterspout
and
tail.
I
also
cut
just
the
 tiniest
piece
of
wood
 of
the
whale’s
lower
 body
(where
the
 wheels
will
later
go)
 so
the
disc
sander
 could
easily
smooth
 and
round
it
out.

  This
was
a
quick
process,
after
I
was
done
 with
that,
it
took
me
about
Oive
minutes
 to
simply
round
out
the
body
(not
the
thin
 parts)
with
the
disc
sander.
I
was
careful
 to
put
the
piece
of
wood
on
the
marked
 area
so
I
could
damage
my
wood
and
I
 was
also
made
sure
I
was
wearing
safety
 glasses
so
no
dust
got
in
my
eyes.
I
was
also
 careful
not
to
touch
the
disc
while
it
was
 moving.
This
gave
my
whale’s
body
a
 smooth
and
round
shape.

this,

will
cut
curved
edges.
I
also
used
a
coping
saw
instead
of
directly
using
a
disc
sander
because
it
was
easier
to
sand
the
edges
it
if
I
cut
off
the
sharp
ends.
 I
used
a
disc
sander
to
round
and
smooth
the
edges
of
my
whale
because
if
I
had
used
a
Oile
for
the
entire
whale,
it
would
have
been
time
consuming.
Although,
I
didn’t
use
the
disc
sander
on
the
water
spout
or
tail
(or
the
small
“in
between”
spaces)
because
a
disc
sander
either
couldn’t
reach
the
places
or
the
area
is
to
thin,
and
there
would
be
a
risk
of
a
piece
breaking
off.
What’s
Next?
 Because
I
have
two
periods
next
class,
I
intend
to
get
a
lot
done.
I
know
for
sure
I
will
be
Oiling
the
spaces
and
scares
of
my
whale’s
body
that
I
didn’t
get
with
the
disc
sander.
This
process
will
smooth
and
shape
the
body
of
my
whale
so
it’s
safe
and
desirable
for
children.
Although,
this
will
take
most
likely
longer
than
the
next
two
periods.
Although,
after
sanding,
I
will
make
my
wheels
and
axles.
Emotion:
 I
would
have
been
happier
getting
more
done,
but
I
think
I
did
well
for
one
period.

I
was
happy
to
know
that
I
started
a
whole
new
part
of
the
my
toy
making
process.
I
was
glad
I
was
done
with
cutting
out
the
body
and
I’m
moving
on
with
Oiling
and
smoothing.
I
think
I
did
a
pretty
good
job
and
I
look
forward
to
making
the
wheels
and
painting
it!
  • 23. AOI

Learner
ProMileI
was
a
communicator
because
when
I
had
problems
or
questions
about
using
the
disc
sander
for
the
Oirst
time,
I
asked
friends
and
the
teacher
how
to
do
it
or
to
show
me
how.

We
are
re‐using
wood
and
using
small
pieces
for
other
projects
so
we
don’t
have
to
use
a
different
piece
every
time.
