Shells like all the comforts of home and you should be impressed that your son goes this far for a shell,,imagine what he may be willing to do for you!

Learning any second language is a bonus., and that's bonus as in $$$  My daughter graduated with 3 language degrees, French being one of them and secured a teaching position at the school of her choice upon graduation...3 school boards were pursuing her,,there is a great demand for people with more than one primary language in many fields

Nice box, But.....will that be Kid made, or too much Parent built? Grade might reflect that. U didn't mention age here.

Caleb is 14 years old, and he did about 85 percent of the work. I cut the strips, and installed the siding. I also made the kitchen cabinetry as the pieces were just a little too small for him to be using the miter box on. Other then that, everything else was done by him. Oh, and I trimmed out one door for him, so that he could understand the angles for the miters.

No word yet, however the teacher asked him if she can keep his project. I'm thinking she wants it for the display case out in the hallway. I also have a feeling the wood shop instructor will be seeing it as well. According to Caleb, he may not know his grade until the end of next week, but I'm banking on him getting an A, since she asked to keep it. I'll keep you posted as soon as we find out. Just so you know, the rest of his classmates brought in kleenex boxes, sandwich bag boxes, and small jewelry boxes. Caleb said his was the biggest.  :D

Caleb got an A++, and the teacher is keeping the project as an example to show her future students what she would like to see. She has numerous projects consisting of shoe boxes and Kleenex boxes, but she wishes the kids would use more imagination in coming up with something better than furniture made of construction paper. However, the downfall with making a project this detailed is, the students now have to go back and label each item displayed in their houses using French word descriptions. Kind of sorry that we used all of the objects that we did!  :smilewink:
