Old School Picture Day

I stumbled across a stack of pictures this morning from various points of the awkward years, including this one from the 8th Grade Economics Fair at Thoreau. (Everyone had to partner up and sell a product. Sam and Jan, clearly, sold Phat Clay Jewelry. Katie Lee (now, Mrs. Katie Stover) and I made Human Beans -- adorable bean bag creations. Rachel Stallman and... someone made sock hats, like the one Jacob Frye is wearing in this picture. Reed and Steg both proffered carnival style games. I specifically remember turning a profit, and mine and Katie's moms taking us to The Gap after school to spend our money. Judging from the lively discussion amongst the old crew all day long, everyone remembers this fair very vividly. So as far as effective teaching tools, I'd say it was a pretty good one.
