Download the preview for full contents.
This product includes:
♦ Center signage with "We will" statements (in both editable Microsoft Word document and easy-to-print PDF file formats; portrait and landscape versions included)
♦ Editable lesson plan for makerspace library center aligned to PA and National Common Core Standards for English Language Arts, PA Academic Standards, AASL Standards, and the Next Generation Science Standards

If you aren’t sure about whether or not a makerspace / DIY center is right for your library, I’d recommend downloading the preview and doing your own research on makerspaces and Maker Faire. I’ve found the "Makerspace Playbook" by Makerspace Magazine
to be very helpful.
