9.27.2021: Google very recently changed drive links for security reasons, so you may find that when you click on a link for one of my printables that you need to submit a share request. PLEASE only submit one share request per item! These have to be manually confirmed and I will get to them when I get to them. I promise you that sending me 12 requests in rapid succession will not make that happen faster, lol! I do not sit on my computer waiting around to send people instant shares of freebies. Thank you so much for your patience as I try to sort out this latest Google mess.

The paperclip was patented in 1899 by William D. Middlebrook of Waterbury, Connecticut. A nifty invention, the paperclip. While its original intent was to clip loose pieces of paper together, I’m willing to bet that, resourceful homeschooler that you are, you’ve come up with a few “off-label” uses for paperclips. They can be handy for hanging up timelines, diagrams or even precious treasures:

Please pardon the brevity of this edition, we're feeling a little under the weather around here.

  1. I love paper clips too. I even use them to fix broken zippers! That's not very educational, but it works. :)
