How pencils are born.....

I wish there was a way to embed this video here, but I don't think I can - anyway - I am writing a sample research paper for my 3rd grade son on pencils, and came across this fascinating video from Derwent about how pencils are made. You can click on the buttons up top to see different parts of the process. Soooooo interesting (even more interesting now that I actually remembered to include the link!)! Check it out:
