The 2nd graders will be creating short Puppet Pals videos about the structures they are researching. They used their notes this week to write out scripts. Most groups have chosen backgrounds and characters, and will be ready to start “filming” next week with the Puppet Pals app on the iPads.
They also worked on centers. Most of the students really wanted to create the Suspension Bridge with the K’nex kits, so that was what the majority of the class chose to spend their time on. They definitely seem to enjoy building!
We are also participating in a “Squiggle Challenge” with a school in Minnesota, in which the students were asked to design anything they liked out of a squiggle (everyone had the same squiggle to start). It was awesome to see that no two students came up with the same idea!
