I did some compass drawings with my fifth graders last year and most had
never even held a compass. I thought most kids got use of a compass by
fourth grade, but I was wrong. Another skill that kids just don't have is
tying a knot. Some of my second and even third graders can't tie their shoes
because their parents buy them velcro. One year we made mobiles in third
grade and it was a nightmare teaching kids to tie. Janet
