Cardboard Challenge

This week 3rd grade came together to work, build and create. It was amazing to see their  teamwork and creativity. Students made everything… a boat, robot, arcade game, paintball course, basketball and more!


Cup Challenge

Every Friday we are going to spend time working collaboratively in a group to try and solve a problem creatively. This week I broke the kids up into groups and gave them 30 cups to try and build the tallest structure they could. It was amazing to watch them figure out the different ways it was possible, what did not work, how persistence and hard work pays off. IMG_0116 IMG_0117 IMG_0119 IMG_0120 IMG_0121 IMG_0122 IMG_0123 IMG_0124 IMG_0125 IMG_0126 IMG_0127 IMG_0128
