This week the cuties were their usual productive selves. Each grade level made excellent progress on their projects.
1st graders wrote a story involving a vertical lift bridge like the one they built. We shared these creative stories and had so much fun experiencing the creativity of our classmates. Then, the kids took apart the vertical lift bridge and started building a draw bridge and a multiple arch bridge.
2nd graders completed the build your own board game project this week. Each student created their own original board game complete with game pieces, cards, etc.. We had a blast playing the games together in class, and the cuties are excited to play at home with their families!
3rd graders continued to build the KNEX roller coaster. As you can see in the picture below, they are all involved in the process at all times.
4th graders have been hard at work building real bridges. One group completed their bridge this week. As you can see from the picture below they made The Golden Gate Bridge.
5th graders prepared a story idea for the Festival de Eanes movie contest. This district wide contest is the perfect fit for a group GT project! Next week the cuties will vote on what story they want to make into a movie. Then, we will begin the large and awesome project of making a movie together!
