QUEST 10/27 – 10/31

We started our Engineering Challenge #3 this week…yay! :)  It is our first team challenge, which, of course, brings a whole new set of variables to the table ;)  Students will have to learn to collaborate and compromise in order to be successful in this challenge and others to come.

We began with a hands-on pre-assessment.  Check out the pictures below…

QUEST 3 Cup Towers 1 QUEST 3 Cup Towers 2 QUEST 3 Cup Towers 3 QUEST 4 Cup Towers 1 QUEST 4 Cup Towers 2 QUEST 4 Cup Towers 3 QUEST 5 Cup Towers 1 QUEST 5 Cup Towers 2 QUEST 5 Cup Towers 3

Each group was given 20 small cups and challenged to build the tallest structure possible using only the cups.  Many teams were able to build stable structures that were more than 20 inches tall, but we did have some teams experience last minute catastrophes due to errors in design/stability.  All in all, students were able to practice working together, as well as gather necessary information that would help them with the actual challenge.

From there, we moved on to take a world tour of various structures and their changes throughout history.  Check out the video below:

While watching the video, students completed a graphic organizer with information about the shape, foundation, building materials, height, base width, etc. they noticed about the structures over time.  This information will be useful when designing and building their structures for challenge #3.

We concluded this week’s session by reading and discussing challenge #3….The Tallest Marshmallow Tower (using spaghetti noodles and small marshmallows).

Next week, we will design and build our structures!  Can’t wait… :)

Introducing- The Million Word Club!

Creekside is introducing a new reading incentive program this year!  This is an individual reading program that will encourage students to read!

Students will take AR reading tests which will record the number of words that were in the book. In order for the words to count toward the incentive program the student must make an 80% or better on their AR test.

When students reach 50,000 words, they will receive a star with their picture and name on it. The star will be placed in the main hallway and will move with each milestone the student moves on to. The student will receive a bookmark.  Other rewards will be earned in increments of 100,000 words.

When the 1 million word goal is reached, the student becomes a member of the “Million Word” Club. Members of the “Million Word” Club receive a free t-shirt and make an “All About Me” poster which will be displayed near the library.  They will also receive a VIP invite to a special Gala just for Million Word Club Readers (this will be held at the end of the year).

For compete details on the Million Word Club, click the link below.
