This is a question School Projects

MostlySunny wibbles, "When I was 11 I got an A for my study of shark nets - mostly because I handed it in cut out in the shape of a shark."

Do people do projects that don't involve google-cut-paste any more? What fine tat have you glued together for teacher?

In junior school at the age of about 8 we were all told that on the next day we'd be making puppets and that we ought to bring in some materials (paper, cardboard, glue, etc) to use. I immediately went home and forgot all about it.

The next day everyone is turning up with bags of stuff. Some appeared to have brought the contents of their Dad's shed with them. I of course had nothing at all. Afraid of what the teacher might do to me I considered running away. On the way out of the classroom I spotted Fred, the class' pet gerbil. Fred had a nice big tank full of interesting stuff. Hmmm, I thought. Checking that nobody was looking I reached in and stole a toilet roll tube.

I went back to my seat, stole some marker pens and a few bits of tatty cloth from a girl opposite who wasn't looking and set about my task. I painted a face on the tube and used the cloth to make some hair and a big cloak. A page torn from an excercise book rolled into a cone made a wizard's hat. A pencil sellotaped to the back made a stick to hold him up with, and some work with scissors and a bit of wire I pulled from out of a bookcase gave him a mouth I could open and close. And there I had him - Gandalf, king of the Wizards.

I got a gold star for my inventiveness. Crime does pay.

I recall
doing something similar, back in school we had to bring in a book for 'quiet reading' during english, I completely forgot for the 3rd time in a row, which would result in detention, so I pinched a book from a classmate when he wasn't looking-Titled 'How To Care For Your Rat'
