Paperclips And Straws

Please excuse my brevity. I promised to have this up for too long. I’ll add more detail later.

Goal:

Build a bridge using paperclips and straws.

Materials:

Paperclips (Donated by Hirsch TeamCFA office)

Straws (Some donated by local businesses)

Each group began with 5 paperclips and 5 straws. To get more supplies the students had to justify the request by using the current supplies effectively and agreeing upon the quantity requested and purpose for the supplies desired.

All the teams did complete the project goal. There are some cool bridges. One team made more than 10 bridges during our time and all met the project requirements.

There are three classes; second, third, and fourth grade students at Hirsch TeamCFA Academy.

Please share your ideas of things we may create. I’m always looking for ideas. Leave your ideas in the comments or email me at Info@ElementaryMBA.com .

Cardboard And Newpaper

Please excuse my brevity. I promised to have this up for too long. I’ll add more detail later.

Goal:

Build a table that would support a ChromeBook when using it for school work.

All the teams didn't complete the project goal. There was one awesome table.

Materials:

Cardboard

Newspaper

Each group had to draw their table before they were given supplies. To get more supplies the students had to justify the request by explaining their drawing that they agreed to create. To get more supplies the students had to justify the request by using the current supplies effectively and agreeing upon the quantity requested and purpose for the supplies desired.

I didn't photograph them all because some of the students didn't want to share their project. There are three classes; second, third, and fourth grade students at Hirsch TeamCFA Academy.

Paperclips And Index Cards

 

Please excuse my brevity. I promised to have this up for too long. I'll add more detail later.

Goal:

Build a structure that would support my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Otter Box case using paperclips and index cards.

Materials:

Paperclips

Index Cards

Started with 10 index cards and 10 paperclips. To get more supplies the students had to justify the request by using the current supplies effectively and agreeing upon the quantity requested and purpose for the supplies desired.

All of the structures did meet project requirements.

I wasn't able to photograph that because I used the phone's camera to take most of the pictures until their regular teacher returned. There are three classes; second, third, and fourth grade students at Hirsch TeamCFA Academy.
