In case you didn't know (and I didn't before this project) the plural of abacus can be either abaci...or abacuses. We prefer abacuses. Namely, 100 of them. In the picture above, Jared is holding a box of 75 of them that went to an elementary school in our district. Another school got the other 25. For his Eagle Scout project, he chose to help out 100 first graders by making abacuses for them to learn math. The district is rolling out a new program for math learning in first grade, and what Jared did was a HUGE help.
**A big thank you to Jared's troop who helped put them together one evening. It was a big help. But the biggest shout out goes to Jared, who literally spent days getting them ready for that point. Awesome job, Joj!!**
