The class went into the project room to work with Ms. Carter. She took half the class at a time to start our next challenge, marble runs!
The first stage of this challenge involves using store bought marble runs to see how they work, how pieces connect together, and to find a way to create a plan with a small group. As with all of our collaborative projects we spent time processing how to work as a team and to find ways to include ideas that may not agree with your own vision. This is simply the setup for creating our own marble runs out of some of the "junk" items on our supply shelves. That stage of the challenge will take a lot more time and patience!
