Second-grade students in Mrs. Rottkamp's class at Centre Avenue School worked together to design, plan and create small-scale models of playground equipment using materials from the Science 21 program. They used their understanding of properties to select the best materials for their equipment, identify if their plans were successful, and then made adjustments to their design, as needed, to make it better.
