ELA and Social Studies
The last month of school will provide students to explore their creative side. In math they will be creating a house of their dreams. Students will become architects, engineers, and realtors throughout this project. They will get the opportunity to create blue prints, draw their house, and create a brochure to sell their house. After the house project, students will get a chance to see how far a million dollars will go. How many things can they buy? More project expectations to follow.
Students will explore the different types of bridges and use that information to build a bridge. Starting the week after camp, they will be working on building popsicle stick bridges. Each group of students will get 100 popsicle sticks in which they must construct a bridge that will hold as much weight as possible! This is always a very fun and exciting project in class! How much weight will each bridge hold?
