The Grade 1’s were excited to roll into this hands-on STEM activity this week. We talked about using our imaginations to create our marble runs, utilizing the materials available to us – various colours of play dough, paper cups and scissors as well as anything in front of them they thought could work. The children eagerly decided which materials would work and which materials wouldn’t for their creations. Working independently or in pairs, the children were soon moving their individual marble mazes and connecting them with their friends’ work. The children demonstrated outstanding team-working skills throughout this entire activity!
