Students in Kindergarten participated in Nursery Rhyme themed design challenges during the 1st Nine Weeks. Students worked together as a team following the Engineering & Design Process to create an egg protector for Humpty Dumpty. We tested our designs by putting an egg in our protector and dropping it from a staircase. We had a very high success rate!
Next, students were challenged to get the “cow” to jump over the “moon”, by creating a catapult. Students used a decorated ping pong ball for the cow and a white balloon for the moon.
Finally, students worked together to make a “fiddle” like instrument.
