Collegiate 3rd Graders Make Toys with Moving Parts
Third Grade teacher Kym Smythe's student "scientists" have spent the past two weeks making toys with moving parts from cardboard tubes and other recyclable materials to better understand engineering products. Recently, they invited Junior Kindergartners to a Gallery Walk to showcase their prototypes.
"I am quite amazed by the effort and the devotion these 3rd Graders have demonstrated," says Mrs. Smythe. "Not only have they been eager from the start to make (their toy prototypes), they continually ask when they can present them to the JK students."
