This week we started building pumpkin packages. The students were challenged to build something out of bags, straws, string, plates, and balloons that could safely deliver the pumpkin to the ground so it doesn’t get damaged, broken or bruised. Students worked in groups of 4-5 to build their pumpkin packages. Next week our principal, Ms. Osei-Bobie, is going to drop the pumpkin packages out of one of the windows on the top floor of the school.
This activity came from Engineer Through the Year.
