Students at Norwood Elementary do a great job of making things from kindergarten all the way up to Grade 6. Here are some examples of students using hands-on learning experiences.

Norwood Newspaper Club was formed by Ms. Rickards as a way to have members of her Grade 5 class at Norwood Elementary School learn about being journalists.
