It’s easy to conjure a chalkboard image when your project needs to say “back-to-school.” But chalk can be far more interesting than algebra class and dusty erasers. You’ll find chalk used in sports and games from hopscotch to baseball. Kids and adults use it to create sidewalk art. You can use chalk to announce the specials at a restaurant, plan a football play, keep a list, or just to create a smear of granular color for a design project.
Chalk has the retro charm of basic, manual technology. It’s getting rarer, too, as people replace chalkboards with marker boards and digital screens.
