First Day in 4th Grade

By in ,

Today my new students demonstrated both ruach and teamwork during the year’s first engineering challenge: The Amazing Egg Drop! The challenge: design and build a container that will protect an egg when dropped from a height of 20 feet. I was thoroughly impressed with not only the ingenuity, but the dedication to the task. The children are already planning modifications for round two later this week.

Bethany and Nir discuss their design.
The egg is safe with Kate!

Despite some initial reluctance, the fourth graders are already embracing (or vise versa) the class pets.

 

It's going to be a great year!
