Construction Materials Bat house
Students in my 2016-17 Basic Home Maintenance class (grades 10-12) utilized construction materials to build bat houses for themselves or the schools environmental group. This introduction project taught the students how to use a handheld circular saw, handheld jigsaw, miter saw, layout tools (including chalk lines, levels, rulers, tape measures, drywall squares, carpenters squares), sawhorses along with correct job-site safety theories and procedures. All in all it was a success. They were stained dark for the area/zone we live in. In addition we discussed bats and their habitats along with why bats are an important part of our ecosystem.
