Popsicle Stick Bridges

The students completed their last building project by working together in a group and building a bridge out of popsicle sticks.  Their bridge had to be at least 30 cm long and 10 cm wide.  They all did an exceptional job and some of the bridges were able to hold 2 or even 3 dictionaries!  Wow!

Newspaper Stools

We completed our last building project by making stools out of newspaper.  Students were in small groups, rolled, and taped newspapers to make cylindrical pillars.  Then they took 10-11 pillars and taped them together.  Finally, they wrapped their stools with newspaper.  Each students was able to successfully sit on their stools!

There was a lot of green on St. Patrick’s Day at IREC! 3L had a fun time working on some creative St. Patrick’s Day writing and in Math we created bar graphs using Lucky Charms cereal and compared our graphs with a partner. During snack time there were a lot of yummy green snacks and we enjoyed our chocolate gold coins from Mrs. Litzenberger

Tower Building

We created towers out of recycled materials in our Building Unit in Science.  We learned that a tall tower needs a wide base for it to be stable and that cutting holes into our towers will also be helpful when it’s windy.  Can you guess the names of the famous towers we built in class?

Animal Building

The students did an amazing job planning and building their animals. They used their schema (background knowledge) from our Testing Unit to help them build a strong and stable animal.

When you comment on this post please explain how you made your animal stable. Think about the size of its head, body, shape of legs, position of the legs under the body, etc. Have fun and I look forward to reading all the posts!
