We have had an amazing start to this school year. Our focus had been on being problem solvers as we establish our classroom community. One of our coffee tables was so tall that we had to stack up the pillows to sit at it. This was not leaving enough pillows for everyone. We recognized this problem. Then the students interviewed each other to find the need, and discovered that the table was too tall to sit at with pillows. They then brainstormed lots of amazing ideas and came to the conclusion that we should cut down the legs of the table to be at the correct height. The students measured and we decided to take 5 inches off the bottom of each of the four legs. They all helped carry the solid wood table down the hall to the design lab where they learned about safety, tools, and saws. Then we were able to solve our problem by cutting down the legs to make our table the perfect height for all of us to sit at together while each using one pillow.
