We began our meeting on October 18 with a STEM challenge! Students used spaghetti, string, tape, and marshmallows to see who could create the tallest structure. Students used a variety of strategies to create their structures, and we were impressed with their creativity! This activity was inspired by this TED talk that investigated whether kindergartners or CEO's would be more successful with this challenge. You might be surprised by the answer!
Next, students watched their interviews and completed an activity inspired by Instagram. We then went outside to run around and have a snack. A huge thanks to Dominoes for donating pizza!
We ended the morning with independent reading and working on our comics in the computer lab. A great day was had by all!
