Exploring Structures in Grade 3

Following their initial investigations into ‘Structures,’ our Grade 3 class hypothesized about: “What do you think a structure is?” “What is needed to support the structure?” “What materials and shapes will give it strength?” and “What shapes will be best for the function of the structure?”

After observing and sketching structures from the school property, and researching structures from around the world, the students made plans to design and construct their own structures, using carefully-selected materials to stabilize and strengthen their collaborative creations.
