First graders in Ms. Harris’ class and Mrs. Bonifaz’s class have now completed the chair challenge in Project Discovery! After listening to A Chair For My Mother, by Vera B. Williams, students had to work with only 20 toothpicks and 20 gumdrops to make their own model of a chair! And the chair had to lean over the edge of the table and not fall for 10 seconds! They all did a great job and got some good practice on being an engineer! They will soon be building a model of the International Space Station using their engineering design skills! Great work!
