This rotation, Kindergarten classes have been learning the steps of the Engineering Design Process and how to put them in to utilize them when creating their project this week. We are reading "Iggy Peck, Architect" this week for out literacy connection and collaborating in our teams to create a Lego bridge over water just like Iggy Peck did! The student teams must adhere to the following constraints:
a. The bridge must be at least one inch above the water.
b. The bridge cannot touch the water.
c. The bridge must be able to bear various weights.
Fourth Grade studied the Civil War. They learned about the causes, key players, important battles, and the spread of disease. In their teams, they constructed water filters from materials that Civil War soldiers may have had available to them during the war years.
