IMG_6980.JPGThird graders took the challenge of making a ball of clay float to help them apply their observations of sinking and floating. Students struggled to come up with ideas and failed numerous times to make the boat float. Determination and grit kept them going to reach success at the end of the lesson. Great to see such innovative third grade engineers today !
