School Projects Disclaimer
Theoretically, any school project should be done by the child with some
help by the parent.
In one of the classes at open house a few years
ago, I saw what an architect's daughter did of the Capitol Building.
Then there was the working saw mill for the Gold Rush. Then there was
a Japanese wooden ship that was incredible (but the teacher could not
find a kit).
As I have gone through school with my daughter, I have
become better and better at doing projects, oops, I mean helping out my
daughter with her project. Have your child work on a specific area of the project (and clarify with the teacher what s/he worked on). For example, with the Joss House, she did the landscaping. The Joss House is the most difficult and time consuming project here.
