    • Draw you your plan/design to scale.
    • Show your design from at least two different perspectives (remember everything has thickness)
    • Include measurements of the different elements, not just the overall size

Grade 9

  • We completed mousetrap “cars” 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 what your group did?
    • What did other groups do that worked well?
    • How could you use something that you learned during the challenge in another class?
