Today's first session was part 2 for the Rocketeers. They began by reflecting on their prior session and we discussed what had worked (or NOT!) with our test launch. After refinement and 'improvement' we assessed our creations. Could they stand unaided (with the cork in)? If not they couldn't be launched (about half of the classes could). Our rockets were certainly better built and dynamics, balance and accessibility to the cork were now considered. We had so much fun setting them off! Great learning, problem solving and perseverance for a class of 5 year olds.
I wonder what the kids will call me, today one said "I'm looking for the Apple Teacher"......and another said "Are you Mrs Maker?" ......funny.
