The first graders were very excited to start a design project about bridges. After viewing a short video about the 3 Billy Goats Gruff, the kids made puppets to help retell the story when they are done building their bridges. Friday there will be a musical performance of the story in a school wide assembly. Next week we will continue to practice building our bridges. We will share design ideas and discuss which designs we liked best, which designs used the most materials and which ones were the strongest.
Here the kids continued building bridges and after they drew their final design, they did a READ to SOMEONE, by retelling, with their puppets, the story to a friend.
Videos will be entered in at a later date.
