This week, all grades took a break from our regular units to have some seasonal fun! Students listened to the song "Frosty the Snowman" and worked through the steps to creatively solve one of Frosty's problems. After students completed the Frosty CPS lesson, they completed a design challenge to build a home that would keep Frosty from melting. We discussed insulation and heat loss then students experimented with a variety of materials that would keep Frosty frozen as long as possible. Students worked on the 4 Ds of Problem Solving - define, design, do, and debrief. I was very impressed with the ingenuity of the houses students constructed! Thank you, parents, for sending in an ample supply of building materials!
