This blog was created by Kate Klein (Ms. Kate), for her students and the families of The Charles Sumner School, Boston, MA.
We will use this blog in class and at home to explore, share, and create the world we want.
The students began by working in groups brainstorming and drawing ideas.
Then they got to building with all recycled materials from the Resources For R.I. Education, in Providence RI.
Design, material, and teamwork obstacles all arose, but these kids were not giving up!
The scholars presented their models to each other. Two things became very clear: 1) they wanted to redesign and make them better, and 2) they wanted to present them to a larger audience.
We gave them time to meet back with their groups to revise their bridges and rebuild.
