I am going to be bringing our T's in to my sons School to show the other kids and give them a lesson on Henry and Model T's. I thought I would start out with a quick power point giving them some history and then show them the cars and give them a ride. I would also like to do a craft type project with them related to the cars. By the way this is a third grade class. I was thinking of using the assembly line idea to make something I just am looking for ideas on what to make. I would like to find something with very little prep work. Any Ideas?

Make pinewood derby style cars. You can easily set the bodies up the look like Model Ts before the demo.

when I taught assembly line for a school module, I bought a ton of pens that could be disassembled into 5 or 6 pieces. Put the kids in groups, mix all the pieces together and have them assemble. Time it. Then have each group segregate out the pieces and each person assembles a different part and hand off. Time it. Then have group competitions to see who can do it the fastest with some prize at the end. Works pretty well. good luck!

Take some identical items made of several parts, like small Lego toy kits. Split them into two groups. Let one group do their assemblies alone and have the other group act as an assembly line to see which group gets them all done first.
