Nov 2nd - Science with Toys presented by Francisco Hernandez
Design thinking and basic science experiments can be made accessible by building a variety of simple toys. Participants will construct tops, pinwheels, wind turbines, parachutes, a basic barometer, or sound horns to listen to old vinyl records. We will investigate how guided exploration through inquiry is an ideal method for teaching STEM in your classroom. This student-driven approach is also well suited for integration of math concepts such as geometry and measurement.
Francisco Hernandez is a 5th-grade teacher, boat-builder, sculptor, and frequent SCRAP shopper. His students have created model bridges, buildings, windmills, and dams using SCRAP materials.

Then she will lead participants through the materials depot to investigate all the bits of wonderful fabric found at SCRAP that can be incorporated into a SCRAP quilt of their own. By the end of the day participants will have the first few blocks of their quilt done or a small top ready to be made into a sandwich and quilted. Included in the workshop will be information for how to quilt and bind these small masterpieces. Please bring a sewing machine.

Dec 7th - Finger Puppet Books presented by Patricia Christensen
Finger puppets are fun and can be easily made with many different materials and techniques. These little puppets inspire storytelling; and dialogue seems to come naturally. After creating their own finger puppet characters, students are eager to write and decorate their creative adventures on sturdy paper. Once holes are cut, finger puppet characters poke up and come alive on the page(s) of student books. This workshop will provide opportunities to make both glued and sewn finger puppets with a variety of treasures found at SCRAP. We will also experiment with simple bookmaking techniques. Because of small items (buttons, beads, pom-poms) used to make finger puppets, they are not suitable for very young children.
Patricia Christensen is a SFUSD Visual Art Teacher with 4/5 grade classroom experience. She has taught textiles and mixed-media art making for over twenty years.
