Still, HA! Look!
This may be my favorite Honey House craft yet. It's Luche libre meets Made by Joel meets origami, and it was wonderful.
See, I would never, ever have thought to build this into a lesson plan, and even if I had, that would have ruined it, because I would have been trying to wedge in resources that supported my pre-determined learning outcomes instead of following my kids' leads, offering stories and facts and links along the path that they blazed. This was spontaneous and silly and so much fun, and it was Spanish and sportsmanship and Greco-Roman sports and percentages (of the prize money split between wrestlers).
I tried to go back and figure out just how we got to this zany homemade toy, but I missed a few turns. No matter. Today and every day, !Viva la unschooling!
