This week the third grade worked on a Makerspace Challenge: You found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but now you need to cross a river to escape from the leprechauns. The only thing you have to build with are the gold coins in the pot of gold. The bridge needs to be 3 cm. across and 3 cm high.
The challenge involved some measuring, some planning, and a lot of patience to balance the coins.
I’m very proud of Mia and Charlotte because they kept working and trying, and finally found the solution!
