This project has connections to Grade 3 Strong and Stable Structures as well as math and literacy - writing and oral communication. Students must create a client for whom they will design a chair for. Students need to consider the structure and purpose of the chair as well as the cost of the materials in creating their chair design. They will have opportunity to provide and receive feedback throughout the project. Students will create a poster and a radio advertisement for their design, and then present to their class (peer-evaluation sheets provided).
"Wow! I loved the assignment (student) did!
I was so impressed how the students marked each others work and wrote comments too! So cute! I really loved how the rubric used pictures of different faces. So cute! I found the assignment was so good, because even for a child who can't spell well, or who doesn't have good handwriting... They are able to express themselves through other ways: drawing, speaking etc.
This is great for Yaakov and all the kids!
Thanks so much!!"
