On Day 1, we built LEGO sorters using only masking tape! It was a challenge! Some classes did not have sorters that sorted out big LEGOs from small LEGOs, but we considered our time together a success because ALL classes demonstrated excellence in practicing the third and fourth steps in the Engineering Design Process! We planned and created with responsibility, respectfulness and team interactions that should make all families and teachers proud!
On Day 2, Kindergarten and Sixth grade created marble runs! Kindergarten focused on making a plan. Sixth grade had to redesign the Kindergarten marble runs to include a 90 degree angle and an obtuse angle. Sixth grade focused on identifying problems, creating a plan and using trial and error to test solutions.
