LJ showed us the tools he uses every day for his job, like a hammer, a screwdriver, a tape measure, pliers, a wrench, and a leveler. He also showed us how to use them!
Then we each got a turn to practice in small groups with our teachers.
We practiced using screwdrivers and pliers to fasten screws to a board. We learned about what hammers are used for, and how to use a leveler to make sure something is straight before you use nails or screws to hold it in place.
LJ taught us a lot about the tools he uses to build, let us practice using some of these tools safely, and even gave us each a miniature tape measure to take home! Thank you for the visit, LJ! We had so much fun learning about tools and building, and we can't wait to hang up our hooks at home!
