|Adding string to make his next strong|
Students were given plastic eggs to put in their nests. We used a folded box as "the wind" to experiment what makes a strong nest.
B.W. put his egg in the middle of the nest. This led to a great class discussion of what birds do to protect their own eggs in their real nests. After seeing this, M.C. decided she would protect her egg by making a nest under the picnic table where no animals would find it!
The discussions we had were amazing. What was even more impressive was the learning that happened and how students built on each others' learning.
