4th Graders create Lunar landers


Lunar Landers being dropped  
Mr. Hunter’s grade 4 class spent several class sessions to apply a variety of skills learned across the curriculum to create a Lunar Lander. Students were placed into pairs, provided document sheets and provided a limited amount of materials. The first couple of lessons focused on the problem presented and beginning stages of reviewing information and planning stages. Mr. Hunter facilitated each stage of learning application. The students continued with building their own version of a Lunar Lander. The final step was for each group to drop their lander and determine strengths and weaknesses. The excitement at each step of the process was endless!!!
