Making Plywood

On Monday, our Science investigation had us discovering how plywood is made.  Plywood is a manmade wood, made by gluing thin layers of wood together.  To demonstrate this process, we glued wooden craft sticks together.  By doing this, we learned how much stronger the plywood was.  One single layer was quite easy for us to break.  However, when we glued several layers together, the plywood became much stronger and we were unable to break it.



During Writer's Workshop, we reported on the process of making plywood.  We shared our writing with our classmates.
