2nd Graders started our new Project Lead the Way (PLTW) curriculum by doing the Structure and Function Unit. Through the use of fairy tales they learned that almost everything that isn’t nature was designed by engineers. After reading Jack and the Beanstalk, the future engineers were challenged with building a free-standing beanstalk using 10 pipe cleaners. Then we added that it also had to have the function of holding the golden egg! Here are a few pictures of what they came up with!
