Yesterday was the 131st birthday of the hole puncher! You may have noticed Google’s Doodle of the Day celebrating this artifact of German invention. Even though I’m a day late, I’d like to give a shout out to Friedrich Soennecken, the fellow who on November 14, 1886, filed his patent for the very first hole puncher. If I were a betting gal, I’d bet that each of you have one or more hole punchers in your classroom. Am I right?
In celebration of this handy-dandy office (and classroom) supply, I’ve selected a handful of hole punch activities from themailbox.com for your kiddos to enjoy.
Hooray for hole punchers!
