Keeping Up With The Kennedy

Miss Donaghey and Mrs. MacKay's Classes

Students worked together with their reading buddies on a STEM Activity. The students read Peter’s Chair and then planned and designed a chair for Peter using only 4 sheets of paper. Students had 10 minutes to work on this in their groups. The chair had to be at least 2 inches off the ground and had to hold “Peter”.
