Goal

To maximize teamwork opportunities while still adhering to our standards. Students will work in teams to construct the tallest balance 

 

What will be done with my students

Students will work in teams to construct the tallest balance framework. Understanding the role of the base and requirements for balance as you construct taller.

Boys groups and Girls groups will work to build pieces that fit. As we move into our measurement unit and understanding square units and dimensions, students with working with puzzles will have that opportunity to construct 3D dollhouses and Lego Spiderman Ultimate Bridges.  

 

Benefits to my students

Teamwork
Prior Knowledge before construction
Measurement knowledge
Dimension knowledge
Balance awareness

Budget Narrative

I would love to be able to access enough Suspension Games to form 6 teams working together to construct. Teams of 4 in each would be of diverse backgrounds and ranges of ability.

Also, I have 13 girls and 11 boys for the Ult. Bridge. and dollhouse construction. I'd love to be able to have all children participate and have hands on therefore I'd need to have at lease 2 of those puzzles for the students.
