I am going to share my display circles; if you teach either of these processes feel free to download them to use in your classroom. You can access the freebie here.
During the first week of school my students saved Fred! It was a great way to introduce them to the engineering design process.
This past week we began our regular "STEM Wednesdays" with our first challenge - building the tallest cup tower. Since we have also spent the first two weeks talking about growth mindsets, the connection of the importance of learning from mistakes was awesome!
This week's challenge will continue the tower theme; I'm looking forward to seeing their spaghetti towers!
