It sure gave me a greater appreciation for my own school, my own 430 sweeties, my own room with my own supplies, my students that know my rules and expectations...I finished up now with summer just starting for me! I am very excited, but I wanted to reflect on what we did this last week...each day a different B for no Boring Summer kids!
Day 1: Bull's Eyes...STEM parachutes, STEM catapults, and STEM cars...X marks the spot
Day 2: Boating Fun and Building Sky Scrapers
Day 3: Buddies Building Coasters
Day 4: Boxes and Arcade Games
Day 5: Bring On Summer Fun! What we can engineer when we are BORED...
Here are some of the activities we did along the way...
|Pipe insulation tubes are the best cheap investment for roller coaster fun! They bend, curve, and loop!|
|Boat building with aluminum foil and clips...parents and kids...all a board!|
|It's our cardboard arcade in action! The kids love to make games out of boxes! Another summer fun activity!|
|Catapult olympics outside...the cure for the summer time boredoms! We had marshmallow catapult catch, homerun derby, bull's eye, and golf! All with a few spoons, Popsicle sticks, rubber bands, binder clips, and creativity!|
|Boat building challenge takes us to the one blow competition!|
