Re: real mirrors in K-5 environment?

I bought 12 x 12 mirror tile at walmart. I used a glass cutter
to divide them into 4 - 6 x 6 sections. We used construction
glue to mount them onto cardboard sheets about 10 x 10.
12 tiles will give you 48 mounted mirrors. The cardboard edges
provide protection and a buffer as they get bumped a lot.

       I'm from Kansas,  where the Legislature and BOE keep trying 
        to define the term "suitable" because our constitution requires
          the state provide a "suitable" education for all students
                      Only Kansas is flat, not the entire planet.
