Fourth Grade Engineering Structures Carry the Weight
Fourth Grade students are already showing their engineering prowess. The students were given a mini- engineering challenge. They worked in groups to create a structure from 3 pieces of paper and 18 inches of tape. The structure needed to be able to hold at least one notebook. Then, like engineers around the world, they needed to improve it. The students were given some extra materials and then created structures based on what they learned from their initial building. Some of the new creations were able to hold 4, 5, and even 7 science textbooks.
