Snow Day

Today’s day off reminded me of a few photos I took recently and forgot to post. Last week, the snow was falling and we all thought we’d have a snow day. But we ended up at school which turned out to be pretty fun. We were able to get outside in the morning and enjoy the flakes for a few minutes before retreating back to the cozy confines of the classroom.

Step Into Our Laboratory

We did a quick lab today to answer the question: “How Does Tube Shape Affect Strength?”

Everyone had a blast trying to stack their books on different shaped tubes. We will use the information we gathered today in the coming weeks as we look into designing bridges.
