Next we moved into Bridges where companies continued work. Today's deadline was to have all the flat parts built, as we have one more working week next week. One group has finished their bridge, one is halfway there, and the other two had to a little bit during lunch, but they all made it! Next week will be the final construction week!
In Architecture we watch a video clip the "ABCs of Architects" and that some architects have become famous for their styles. Each student chose an architect for research and we went over the Architect profile page and the project choices. For homework students will research their architects and complete the profiles. They may start on their project if they like but it is not required.
We spent the rest of the day in Mystery Powders learning more about physical and chemical changes. Students practiced observations with a "Taco Penny" investigation. Ask your child what he/she learned. Next week we will see all the mystery powders and observe them using our skills.
The architect profile is the only homework this week.
See below for some photos from our Parade of Homes. Also, below that, see more photos from April in STRIDE. I forgot to post them at the end of April. :)
