Subject:Structures, Buildings and Design at LES
The student's in Mrs. Stroeder's Grade 8 class began their PAA Unit on Structures, Buildings and Design.  Through 2 challenges students were asked to construct one free standing structure that was the tallest in the class using soda straws and marshmellows, and the next challenge was to construct a structure that would hold the weight of a book using toothpicks and marshmellows.  Students were then asked to explain their learning to the class and all agreed that through collaboration, inquiry, teamwork and communication skills they either were very successful or unsuccessful.  It was a fun learning activity for all participants.
