Deciphering Construction Blueprints

We began our school year in the Learning Commons by sharing the wonderful Each Kindness by Jacqueline Woodson. Students discussed the importance of never missing an opportunity to be kind. We also had fun with Munsch’s Mortimer and built our beds with the lego.

Some classes problem solved to see if they could decipher the construction blueprints for the new school addition. Students were very interested to figure out the symbols and plans. We also designed our own school – complete with basketballl hoop in the library!

Marble Run Challenge

Students challenged each other by designing Marble Runs for their classmates to solve. We used LEGO which worked really well. A standard marble is a perfect fit for a double space between bricks.

Students became very creative with their ideas and are working on time management and using the allotted time wisely.
