Day 08 - Smarter Buildings (Elementary)

The students continue to amaze me with their innovation!  With our buildings we needed to make sure that we understood the area of each part, so we used our math skills to multiple the sides to find the area.  The student labeled the area of the sections on their graph scale drawing.

As a class, we used our feedback skills to help each other make sure that our buildings were sustainable and eco-friendly.    To help us remember what an eco-friendly building may have we watched a video, http://science.howstuffworks.com/482-how-green-building-works-video.htm   The students also went back to their users needs to make sure that their building is what they had wanted.  Also, they used the feedback from their friends to finalize their buildings. With all this work, the students finished their prototypes!
