Firstborn son’s latest Civics project is vinta making. Though I have an idea how a vinta looks like, I still have to check Google for a more reliable look.
Here is our vinta, all made from an illustration board. We glued the parts together using a glue gun. The flag was an assortment of Japanese paper. The boys have a number of GI Joe action figures so we added them as well, but they did not look like what we originally plan- fishermen (we glued the GI Joes later at night and I wasn’t able to take some pictures).
Just like in their previous projects, the boys helped me with the vinta. But they were more eager to have the project done because it was Saturday and they are allowed to use the computer or Gameboy.
Anyway, four days after submission, firstborn happily announced over the phone that he got 98% for his vinta project.
We are all happy. Now the boys are waiting for the teacher to return the vinta so they can play with it.
* (January 2011) I compiled and will share some of the school projects made by my boys in order to help other students with their research. It has always been this momi’s intention to offer help the best way she can.
