For the remainder of this week and part of next week the students in my classroom will be working on a Problem Based Learning ( PBL) project. The students will be divided and placed into groups. These groups will then have to create an object that will protect an egg being dropped from a height of 20 feet. The following objects are the only items that can be used; toothpicks, string, paper clips, straw, cotton balls, pipe cleaners, rubber bands, paper, cotton, newspaper, balloons and plastic sheets. If your child has these items at home it would be nice if they could bring them in as extra items. The class will determine a final winner and that creation will represent my class in the overall competion. The competion will be held on Oct. 31, 2014 at the high school football field.
