Designing Shelters

Students worked in partners to construct a shelter for their little people from our classroom entrance display. Each pair of students was given a set amount of supplies to build their structure. After constructing their shelter each structure underwent the ultimate test. A major windstorm (leaf blower) and a torrential downpour (an awesome squirt bottle).  Many students discovered the power of the triangle when striving to build a sturdy structure. Here are a few photos from today's shelter tests!
