Wood to Pencils
By: Ernie Jones
Where do pencils come from?
It comes from wood; it also comes from wood from the forest, and the factory.
How are pencils made?
First the wood get cut to a pencils shape. Next they put led in it. Then a machine put erasers on the pencils. Last they dipped the pencils into paint.
The inside of a pencil is made from graphite. The pencils in the factory are 4.2 inches long.
Pencils have a hexagon shape to stop the pencils from rolling on desks.
