complex proiects in each of the varied fields.

Many New Things
Three maior Building Construction classes were in-
cluded in the curriculum at Benson. Periods l-2 were the
Option One students, periods 3,4,5 included the house
builders, and periods 7,8,9 were the Senior Class students.
The different classes studied and made a variety of
wood orientated proiects. In the Option One class students
studied ways of testing all the materials involved in the
construction field, structural design, safety, cost
estimating, and the design and building of Garden Houses
using the metric system.
The 3,4,5 period class was responsible for the building
of two houses on the space near Annex 4. This included
surveying, building the houses on school property,
loading and unloading the truck used to haul the house
sections to the building site, rebuilding the house at the
permanent site, and keeping the fenced area cleaned up.
The Senior Building Construction class lperiods 7,8,9l
was responsible for building cabinets, kitchen counters,
book cases, head boards for beds, and other general pro-
iects that Mr. Sterling Borquist, teacher, needed to have
done for school or faculty use.
Some items were built by all students. Tool boxes were
built by iuniors and saw horses were constructed by both
Senior Class members and Option One seniors.
Sophomores interested in Building Construction could
take sophomore framing and finishing classes.
