"Watch Out...It's a Category 5 Hurricane, named LeBarron!"

4th and 5th graders in Ms. LeBarron tackled a team building activity utilizing the Engineering Design Process.

The Students' objective was to create the sturdiest "house" with only a stack of index cards and glue sticks that could withstand Hurricane LeBarron. 

Through team work, reasoning, trial & error, and a lot of excitement these students came up with extremely creative homes that could withstand a "LeBarron hurricane" (Ms. LeBarron emulated a hurricane by blowing on each structure.) The students were engaged and showed a lot of enthusiasm as they completed this activity.
