We spent the day learning more about forces and motion in roller coasters. We designed (with some help from Mrs. Armstrong) and built roller coasters.
So far we have 1 working roller coaster. Check out the link below for the video.
We had a blast completing our Oreo Challenge for the O.R.E.O. Project! We all stacked cookies as a class. Our top 4 winners were Alex, Aditya, Marley, and Arianna. Alex sttacked 24 cookies and our class average was 15 cookies!
After our class stacking, the class winners competed against the class winners of a 4th grade class at Vaughn Elementary on the other side of the county. We had some technical difficulties and we lost, but it was fun!
We have one more activity we are going to do for the O.R.E.O. project this upcoming week.
