Singing Engineers in First Grade

 

Building April

 

First grade engineers have been busy meeting their final design challenge – building sturdy houses out of straw, wood, and concrete for little, pink pigs. First graders came up with the three criteria for their houses and then set to work designing and testing their models. In the process, students persevered, collaborating in crews to find workable solutions to the design problems they encountered. As they worked, our next generation engineers burst into songs about their building materials. We can’t wait to hear more in June when our singing engineers perform in their original musical of The Three Little Pigs.
