Michelle, at Delightful Learning, is posting a weekly “Instant Challenge” that encourages critical thinking and creative problem solving and used materials that can be easily found around the house, such as straws, chenille sticks, rubber bands and foil.
We decided to try out this week’s Boat Race. Emily’s task was to build a boat using styrofoam cups, foil, popsicle sticks, chenille stems, etc and float it across a tub of water. She had an 8 minute time limit to design her craft. This would have been extra fun if she had some other children around to compete with!
We are looking forward to next week’s challenge! (Actually, I think we will go back and try last week’s bridge building challenge first!)
