S.'s Eagle Project By Tyler
April 13, 2009
On Monday, April 6th,
Adam S. was focusing on doing the most important part of his Eagle
Scout project. With the help of John L., Michael P.,
Jake S., and myself, Adam was starting to make bird houses.
For Adam's project, he is making bird houses for wildlife management
areas. In the next few paragraphs, I will explain what happened
at that meeting, what went well and what did not go well, and what Adam
plans on doing to improve what went wrong on April 6th. Adam
arrived at the troop meeting with plenty of wood, a screwdriver, and
two hammers. Right away we began having problems figuring out how
the birdhouses were supposed to be made. It took us quite a while
to figure that out, and then we were able to start making the
birdhouses. Things went well for quite a while, and we found out
that the wood we had was not going to make square birdhouses, but Adam
said it was okay anyway. One problem that arose was that when we
would pound the nails into the wood, the wood began to splinter.
We were able to make four complete birdhouses by the end of the
meeting. Adam was not satisfied by the number that we were able
to make, but said that it was a start. I asked Adam what he would
do differently next time we worked together, and he said that he would
make sure that he is making the birdhouses right, he would find better
quality wood, and review with each person helping him what their task
is. He also said that for the remainder of the project he would
like to have better laid out plans and would make sure that the work
each person is doing is quality.
