What an eventful afternoon! First we worked in groups to put together our solar powered Mars rovers. This was interesting as we can across many obstacles. We had to really think like scientists to overcome them. I think we got them all working for at least a few minutes. We learned that metallic tape works best to reconnect wires to the motor. We also learned that they don't go anywhere if they are in a shadow or if there is a cloud over the sun. IF we had more time we would write a letter to the makers and help them build a more reliable vehicle. We have lots of ideas.
Our last dance class was so much fun! We learned a new dance to the Footloose song. We really got our groove on :)
1.) Tomorrow night 6:00 - 7:00 pm is our Celebration of Learning.
2.) We will begin to take many of our materials home on Friday so please bring a sturdy bag.
What are you most proud of accomplishing this year?
