Well guys, it has begun. I have been observing different schools all semester, and now I have started teaching lessons in some of these classes! Here are the projects we are working on at the elementary level.
Here are some of the airplanes and helicopters we are working on in conjunction with the students' studies of WWII.
We also designed and built an AIRCRAFT CARRIER. Can you believe that?
This is my favorite of all of the projects...Taka's "flying pig" helicopter. "When pigs fly," get it?
And we are also building a CASTLE to cover the entryway of the kids' social studies room. We talked about architecture briefly and reviewed the parts of a castle (which the students had already learned) and then let them design the facade. They are all really self-directed learners. I love these kids!
