Unit 1 - Humpty Dumpty, Stay on the Wall!
Students in Grade 1 began engineering a safety seat for Humpty Dumpty. We learned that Humpty could not continue his beloved job as a castle guard because he kept falling off the castle wall. Students had to engineer, test, and evaluate a safety seat to keep Humpty Dumpty up on the wall.
During this unit, students learned about different properties of materials, they tested the effects of wind on materials, they made observations and recorded data, and they had fun building their safety seats for Humpty Dumpty.
This was a great first chance for our youngest Engineers and Scientists!
