The rest of our day was spent in Construction Concepts. First students worked in small groups to construct triangle trusses. Next we began testing their strength, observing and sketching their structural failure. We tested half of them and will complete this activity next week. See below for some photos by our Paparazzi Pals.
For homework this week:
1. Return the permission slip if you haven't.
2. Edison: Explore the resources in the Google Classroom to find out about his life and his inventions. Fill out your CFT chart (characteristics, forces, and techniques) and list any additional facts.
Finally, Valentine's Day falls on our STRIDE day this year. A majority of the students are interested in exchanging valentines and having a small snack. Of course no one should feel obligated to participate, but this will be a small part of our day. See below for a list of names. I will give students a printed list next week.
