Building a Community

In Social Studies, we have been learning about the Characteristics of a Community. Students have been working hard to find out all the important things needed in a Community. We have been gearing up to work on our big Community Building project and today we started sorting our materials. Students were asked to bring in recycled materials and after learning all about the different characteristics of materials we were ready to get started.

We first sorted metal, cardboard and plastic.

We then signed up to build 3 different things in the community. (Which led to a good discussion on why we can’t all make a McDonalds)

We looked at our community pieces and tomorrow we will be ready to build!
