They used to greet their teacher with a high-five every morning. But now, in corona time, of course, they can’t. That’s where master Hans came up with something: the high-five machine.
This nice moment to start the day was actually indispensable, everyone thought. And so masters Hans and Mark thought of another way. A wooden device with a fake hand on it, with which the children could still greet the master. The fake hand gives a high five when the child kicks the pedal.
Hans and Mark’s group 5 class is used to starting and ending the day with a handshake or high five from the teachers. But since the one-half meter rule that’s not possible anymore.
The credits for making the machine go to Hans’ father-in-law. "I said to him, I have a challenge for you. I presented him with the plan, without having a concrete idea of what the machine should look like. Well, after three days, the high five machine was painted and it was in the classroom."
