Today, we started a Mystery Science bridge building lesson (distance learning style). We watched the video during our daily Google Meet, discussed designs in the chat, created prototypes and started building bridges out of paper. Students are inserting pictures of their bridges into a Google Slides presentation and retooling/retesting designs. So far, Mia was able to build a bridge, made with only two pieces of paper, that can hold over 700 pennies! The competition continues next week. My little engineering scholars are amazing!
Mr. Riggs has taught fourth grade for over twenty years. Learning should be fun and engaging!
