Alternative Eiffel, Cedar Boxes, Mighty Girls

Figuring out a building plan

Vanier students are Makers. After creating designs last week, students came up with a construction plan and worked cooperatively to build their own interpretations of the Eiffel Tower. They figured out that communication is the most important thing when working together.

We continued with our Mighty Girl project. Students began to choose fabric and design clothing for their character. We also worked on research for our First Nations Cedar Boxes. Many classes used Doodle Buddy App to show their learning about Chinese New Year Dragons.
