Third Grade is "Making" To Get Back To Space
Our first-third grade science teacher, Mrs. Warner, is again challenging the third grade students to go out in solar system. As part of their unit on outer space, Mrs. Warner has them imagine, plan and create space exploration vehicles. This set of "lessons" has begun and I have been invited to help students with the "making" part of the project. My job is to cut things they can't cut (like old PCBs or hard plastic bottles), help hot glue (I man the "high-temp" gun) and answer design questions.
