28 May Roller Coasters, Visitors, and Snakes!
Another eventful week!!
Most of the week was spent on completing our Roller Coaster project. This project had no real reason except to be fun at the end of the year. About a month ago I told my students to start collecting toilet paper rolls, paper towel rolls, and cardboard boxes (cereal, cracker, etc). Then they were split into groups of their choosing and all I told them was that they needed to build me a really creative roller coaster where the marble could start at one end and make it to the other end without any human help. All they could use was cardboard and tape (that they had to bring). Their creativity was awesome! Some coasters had flips, turns, jumps, tunnels, and more! It was just a fun and creative activity for the end of the year.
