The Spring Peeper
This is our class insect, the Praying Mantis. We found it outside of our classroom. In order to keep it alive and well, we needed to build an artificial habitat.
First, we started by learning more about a praying mantis and what it needs to survive. We read books and did research online to find out all that we could.
Next, we used our research to draw habitat designs with our Tri-Teams.
After designing our habitats, we went outside to gather material to build our habitat.
We worked as a team to use the materials that we gathered to build the artificial habitat.
Lego Robot Engineering.
Partners used our Lego Robot sets and manuals to build different robots, like a lion with a working mouth, an airplane with a
moving propeller, and working crane.
We then used Lego WeDo Software to remotely control our models and robots. We will be constructing student engineered robots later in the school year. The students will then use the WeDo Software to control the robot that they built in order to perform a task.
