Wind Detection Devices

Our latest Science design project was to build a Wind Detection Device.  Students had two days to plan and build something that would move or make noise in the wind.  It had to be made of at least 3 different kinds of material and be sturdy and neat.  A checklist was provided to make sure it met the criteria.

We use the online link to the weather station on top of our school every day during calendar time to record the wind speed and today we found it was 14 kilometers/hour.  We decided that would be enough to test our devices.  

The students did a great job and showed their ability to use the design process once again.

Science Design Project

The Grade Twos finished off their Position and Motion Science unit with a project to design a vehicle that met certain criteria.  It has to have at least 4 wheels and 2 axles, have room for a driver and cargo and also roll down an incline plane.  The kids showed lots of creativity and determination to keep going when the wheels fell off and the tape kept sticking to itself!
