In order to be successful in engineering challenges, scholars need to have lots of experiences with building, designing and creating using many different tools and materials.
This week, scholars investigated some of the engineering tools we have in our classroom. They investigated Legos, Tinker Toys, Plastic Straws with Connectors, K-Nex, Erector Sets, Keva Blocks and Gears. We talked about the attributes of these tools and what could be created using them. This experience also gave us another chance to work on teamwork skills. Needless to say...These tools were a hit!
