Normally, I am the parent who supervises and helps with school projects in our Trenches.
However, when Eldest came to me with his geometry project, I was at a loss.
The instructions were to create a 3-D town. Gulp. Not only that, but the town had to include a checklist of various shapes (rectangular prisms, hexagons, spheres...) and angles (right, acute, obtuse...) and lines (parallel, perpindicular...) and *yawn* I was totally OUT OF MY ELEMENT.
Enter Hubby. With his college degree in REGIONAL PLANNING. Hello???? Totally a project best suited for him. TOTALLY.
Anyway, Hubby and Eldest went to work. And mapped out a blueprint of the town they wanted to create. Called "Viz-ville". Cute.
But then, Hubby and I went away overnight this weekend. And left the boyz (and the project) in the hands of my Sis and my (very artistic and creative) Niece.
While we were gone? The project was completed!
And you can bet your ass this project is being saved...saved for 2 more years, when it's Middle's turn to create a Geometry Project (from Hell).
Let me ask you this: What's your take on school projects that obviously require heavy parental involvement? And are actually more *parent* projects than *student* projects? Because I find them completely annoying.
