Paper Clips

During my Study Hall, one of my eighth grade boys from another study hall came into my room. He had four boxes of paper clips. He had 200 paper clips.

"Can we connect these paper clips?"


It took them two minutes to do the work. They wanted more paper clips. I scrounged up another hundred.

They took the paper clip chain around the school asking teachers who were not busy for more paperclips.

They had six more.

I hope they'll remember what single paperclip can mean.
