Sixth-graders Create Puzzles for Alzheimer’s Patients

Sixth-graders in teacher Karen Glum’s Innovation Lab are studying new skills and creating for a cause. As they learn how to use the tools found in the lab, students are crafting puzzles for people with Alzheimer’s disease. The project allows students to do more than work with saws, jigsaws, and other tools. They have an opportunity to give back. Students used a scroll saw to cut the puzzle pieces and cut the frames using jigsaws. Students have help from outside the classroom as well. The Alzheimer’s Association of Cincinnati helps Glum and the students get the puzzles in the hands of caregivers and their patients.
