Deans School Engineering

During this cycle, the students learned about Engineering and the Engineering Design Process.  They learned that Engineers are creative problem solvers.  The students also learned the steps of the Design Process: Ask, Imagine, Plan, Create and Improve.  The kindergarten students used the Design Process to complete a challenge. The students began the cycle with a quick challenge: The Blocks Tower Challenge Challenge:  To build the tallest, block tower you can.  The tower must be able tot stand up on its own without support. Materials:  Blocks

   

  

  

  

They were then presented with another challenge: Tall Tower Challenge:  To build a tall tower using only cups and paper. Materials:  8 sheets of 8 1/2 X 11 card-stock paper, several cups that are a variety of sizes.   Using the steps of the Engineering Design Process, the students worked on the challenge in small groups.

  

  

   

  

The groups shared their ideas, solutions and reflected on their work.  Through this challenge the student engineers learned the character traits needed to be a successful engineer.

Cycle 4 Language Arts and Digital Communication

    Cycle 4 focused on Language Arts & Digital Communication.  The Kindergarten students read Goldilocks and the Three Bears. They learned about story elements, which included beginning, middle, end, characters, setting, problem and solution.  The students created a solution for the story.  They then learned about writing a friendly letter.  The students were challenged to write a letter of apology to the Three Bears from Goldilocks.  The Kindergarteners typed a letter using Google Docs.  They also learned how to change the font and color of the font.  We hope you enjoy their letters!!!
