The Grade Ones have been busy building models of structures. We began by brainstorming ideas for structures that we could build.
Then the students chose a structure they wanted to build a model of; each student completed a planning sheet that outlined the function and features of their structure. Yesterday, the students began to build their models. Today, we continued our work.
Tomorrow is our last building day. Once the students are finished their structures they will reflect on the building process – what was easy, what was difficult and how they might improve upon their structure/design if given the opportunity.
Here are a few of our “almost complete” structures.
