Today was the second session of the school year and 6th grade is still the best class. Today they learned about engineering and the process that engineers go through to design. Their project was to draw a design of a structure that could withstand an earthquake it’s called Shake-it-Up . They then took the design they made and used clay and straws to make their designs real. After they have to test how stable their structure is during an earthquake. They are super excited about this project and they did a really good job with their Shake-it-Up experiments. In fact, they all succeded on thier first trial. They are all super proud of themselves and their classmates.
Today was 6th grades’ first day. They did a project with their nametags and got to personalize their journals. For snack they did an engineering challenge. Thete had to make a tool out of newspaper and tape to get their snack down off the wall. The students had fun designing their tools and helping eachother out with getting their snack down.
