The second graders are building walls! Last month, they learned about sand, soil, and clay through hands-on investigations. Miss Pomada read a story about a girl who built a wall to keep a rabbit from eating her plants. The students have ASKED what the problem is and IMAGINED solutions by testing the strength of sand, soil, and clay. They PLANNED the mortar they want to use and began to CREATE their walls this week! They will then test their walls with a “demolition ball” and redesign their walls to IMPROVE them and make them stronger!
