The summer has come and gone and DoDDS teachers spent it by traveling, visiting in the states or simply looking at paint colors, bathroom fixtures, and flooring. One of us is building a house in the states and the other is building a house in Germany. Who knew there could be so many variances when building a house in different countries? Especially with all the city codes, yikes! But we both know that the end result will be great and neither one of us can wait to move into our new abodes.
It is a good thing we spent some time talking about buildings with our classes this past year. We were able to recognize the vehicles used and some of the processes for building a house due to our previous study on buildings. Our end results will not be as grand, but definitely more permanent!
STEM House Building Project:
The Three Pigs are trying their best to build a house that will protect them from the Big Bad Wolf. For their STEM building project, they were given materials such as cardboard, tape, craft sticks, popsicle sticks, cereal boxes, or pipe cleaners – anything that would promote creativity and solution of the problem! Check out some of the creations!
