STEM Challenge Fun

The Grade 3 class was challenged to design and build a watering device for the plants they have grown. The children were so excited to design and test their devices.¬† Over the course of few classes, the children tested, and adjusted their plans as they tried to build the best watering device possible. An amazing thing started to happen in the class, the children started to help and encourage each other. One student told the whole class, “You don’t fail until you stop trying”. The children cheered each other on as they watched the watering devices in action. They helped each other fix the leaks¬†– yes we did have water all over, but it was worth it! All the children were highly engaged and putting forth their best efforts. I am getting excited for more STEM challenges with Grade 3.
