Students continue to create their servering trays using recycled pallet wood. This week they will be creating the base pieces which measure an overall length and width of 10″ x 14″. If students wish to add their own handles to the tray they should bring them after the Christmas break as well as any craft paint if they would like to paint their tray.
Students begin their final unit on structures by creating a paper roller coaster. This week the focus will be on how structures are built. We will form small groups of 3-4 to create a coaster which will take the longest amount of time to get from a height no taller than 2 feet to the bottom.
On Wednesday you will watch a video on a paper coaster and practice how to build a coaster using a list of coaster games. These are harder than they look but take your time and you will be successful. Groups will need to have a theme for their coaster by Friday.
