Suggested Materials/Tools list for Industrial Arts

Home learning

After looking over the assignments from our online learning experience, I came up with a suggested list of supplies and materials. I do not suggest you buy everything on this list, but most of these things would be helpful to most households and student projects anyway. If you choose to buy these things, it would be very helpful for your at home learning experience.  I would put these items aside in a labeled box or large storage container. I would also store/save cut up boxes and things for future use.
