Our budding little scientists have just started learning about force and motion. The kids experimented with “push and pull” using matchbox cars and we talked about what makes an object move in different directions. We got so excited about this topic that we decided to take our little scientific engineers to the Design Lab where each student paired up with a friend and then interviewed their partner to see what their favorite color and animal/character was.
Next, they drew out a prototype of a marble maze they could make for their partner. On Friday, we went back down to the Design Lab to create a marble maze perfect for our partner. Not only did the mazes turn out amazing but more importantly the students felt so good giving (and receiving) something personal and special from their friend. It was the very heart of gratitude!
