The children worked as civil engineers today. We worked with a one-story structure and a tower. We explored different actions with the structures; weight and wind, and the children observed the effects of these actions. We discussed the problems and possible solutions. We were successful in adding another column to our one-story structure and we added string (cables) to our tower to make them stronger.
I love staying connected between the classroom and the children's homes. I look forward to posting often this year! Feel free to leave comments!
