If you have been following all of the awesome events and projects taking place in my 4th and 5th grade ELP classes, then you know we have been working on creating a container that will allow Pringle Chip to be mailed to another state unharmed.
You can read about the whole project and requirements here: http://coffeeforthebrain.blogspot.com/2012/10/pringle-challenge-is-underway.html
Last week while we were finalizing our containers(we were under the gun with only about 2-3 class periods to get it all done) students were asked to step out into the hallway and record a little bit about what they created and why.
I apologize for the movement of the camera as the students did not have the most steady hand.
When the packages arrive and we Skype with the classes I will be sure to share the results.
Here is 4th grade
Here is 5th grade
Last, here is a slideshow of pictures and video documenting the creation process. There are some awesome ideas in here.
