In the last week leading up to the summer break, Grade 5 has been building rockets that will hopefully “Reach for the Stars”!
In this unit, students have been exploring how our planet is part of a vast and complex universe. For their summative assessment, students have taken on the role of mathematicians, engineers and astronauts to find a new home for mankind. In hopes of getting them there, each team has had to design and create a rocket that flies straight and high…and is under budget. Every item them use will cost some funding.
What a great way to end the school year! 3, 2, 1…
