February 5, 8, & 9

Grade 7

  • We completed our tallest structure challenge today. Some were much more successful than others though as the students found out the real purpose of this challenge had nothing to do with building.
  • Please reflect on what you did and saw by responding to the following questions:
    • What did you contribute to supporting your group with the challenge? (Basically, what did you do to help your group?)
    • What worked and did not work with your group’s structure?
    • What did other groups do that worked well?
    • How could you use something that you learned during the challenge in another class?

  • We continued working on the mousetrap powered vehicle. Remember that you can either try to make it go the furthest, make it go the fastest, or both.
  • You are encouraged to bring in your own supplies such as recycled material as I am only providing limited supplies.
