The chain mail ball project is perfect for middle school or high school shop classes. It can be made in a Metal Work or Tech ed. shop, but does not need to be as it uses very little in the way of machinery. Students use these unique projects as juggleing balls, hacky sacks, anti stress balls, or just something cool to play with. The plans include a list of materials, tools needed, and complete step by step illistrated instructions. This chainmail ball is a great Technology Education project for a shop teacher who is just starting out.
