Well, I hadn’t thought that far ahead. I had no idea…….just sat there looking around, trying to think of a cutesy name…..
And there was my blog name!
My blog and TpT store now have a name inspired by a random brain freeze when I could not think of anything else….probably should not have told this story……but it is kinda funny.
Aren’t fur babies fun?
Glad you asked.
I decided it was bridge building time:
Here’s what third grade did:
Their task was to use index cards and at first they were fairly whiny.
“How can we do this?”
“Are you sure we can’t use anything sticky?”
In the end they were quite amazed at themselves. They built great little structures with nary a piece of tape or drop of glue!
Here’s what fourth grade did:
Yep, that’s toothpicks and marshmallows. This was the best version- look at the double supports. Most of them crashed– fairly quickly.
Also, marshmallows are the worst
sticky mess EVER!
However,the problem solving and collaboration was intense!
Here’s what fifth grade did:
Very sophisticated use of straws and toothpicks, I must say. They actually had toothpicks that braced the structure tightly to the boxes. It worked so much better than the team thought it would- that’s the beauty of a STEM Lab.
Next week we are tackling flower dissection, catapults, and electric circuits.
Not at the same time- different grade levels!
Well, now, how random is that?
Not very, actually, it’s my all time favorite TV show! I have only missed ONE episode in all these years it’s been on TV.
April 27, 2011- we had tornadoes in Alabama and no electricity for 5 days. That’s the only time I missed it.
Anyway, this year the premise is Beauty vs Brains vs Brawn.
I really dislike the Beauty group. They are such spoiled little babies.
And, boy are they all miserable- cold rain constantly.
I’d like to see a movie star version of Survivor.
Have a great weekend y’all!
