Woodworking: Sanding Sneetch Stars

Our woodworking activity for the Dr. Seuss unit was Sanding Sneetch Stars.  In the story of the Sneetches, the Star Bellied Sneetches had to go through a special machine to make their stars go away.  We let the children use sandpaper to remove colored stars from a piece of wood.  We wrapped the sandpaper around wooden blocks to make it easier for the children to use.  As with every woodworking activity, the children wore safety googles to help protect their eyes.
