Little Engineers Help The Gingerbread Man

Class 1-306 made rafts to cross the river for the Gingerbread Man. This engineering lesson was part of the first grade Fairytale unit. The students chose materials like straws, popsicle sticks, tape and pipe cleaners. They worked in teams to build a raft that would float and be able to keep the Gingerbread Man dry for a count of 12. Some of the rafts worked and some teams had to rebuild their rafts to meet the challenge!
