First-grader Adam Beard wiggled in his seat while he meticulously painted each of the six pieces of a wooden ornament in bright colors. He stopped to examine each piece making sure no spot was left bare. "This one's mine," he said excitedly, beaming with pride as he handed over the pieces to waiting high school students. Armed with hot glue guns, the older students carefully put the pieces together to form a beautiful 3-D ornament ready for the first-graders to use as their own decorations at home.
