It’s Water Slides!
Third graders were so excited!
Mind you, I think they were expecting to get to slide on them, but even when I told them we were building water slide models, they were still excited!
Will it Work?
So, what did I learn with this challenge?
- I learned that third graders don’t all know how to pour water! Mind-boggling how many of them missed the slide and poured water on the table. Like right on it. One sweet little girl even dumped the ENTIRE water cup down the slide in one giant dump. It splashed everywhere!
- You truly learn from your mistakes. When the water slide leaks you quickly know what to patch or change.
- Water slides can be messy! It’s all good, though. It was just water. We used a lot of towels- which, by the way, is a great thing to have in your classroom. And I mean real towels, not paper ones. Real ones work better!
- Not kidding! Third graders LOVED this challenge!
