Popsicles Tower Project

Project Description:
Towers are impressive structures. What does it take to design a building so tall? Engineers use strong materials and innovative design to push the limits of gravity. In this project you will work in-teams to research, design, build and decorate a popsicle tower that is structurally sound. Students will design a tower as well as prepare a proposal that describes the function and purpose of their building. For example, is it a restaurant, a business complex,  or a mall? Why is this structure needed? The building structure should also be aesthetically appealing. Also, each team must prepare and present a poster board that reflects their proposal and prototype design. The teams will build their towers during the school day at times to be announced.

-          Tower must be flat on top and at the base

-          Tower must be a  straight (column) structure

-          Tower height must be between 40 cm to 60 cm.

-          Maximum base size must be between 10cm by 10cm to 15cm by 15cm.

-          Tower must support a minimum of 7 kg without yielding or failing.

-          100 popsicles sticks

-          1 bottle of glue

-          ruler

The project incorporates Science, Language Arts, and Visual Arts. Grading rubrics will be sent home on a later date.

أولياء الأمور الكرام السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته:-

أنهينا شهر مارس بنجاح والحمد لله ، ولقد بذل معظم التلاميذ مجهودا عظيما يستحقون عليه الشكر والتقدير سواء في الأعمال الكتابيه ( اختبارات دورية، استماع ،  مشروع ( رجال حول

الرسول) إلى جانب العديد من النشاطات الصفية.

في هذه الفترة سيكون برنامجنا حافلا بالعديد من المواضيع الشيقة ذات الطابع الاتصالي بحياة التلميذ العلمية والعملية . ففي القراءة سيكون درسنا القادم -إن شاء الله- في معرض الكتاب

والاستماع إلى قصة تتعلق بالدرس والإجابة عن الأسئلة الموجهة ، ثم تلخيصها بأسلوب التلميذ ، أما في التعبير سيكون عن فائدة القراءة وأنواعها  ، ونصنا القادم (أرضنا الطيبة ).

هذا إلى جانب الإملاء والاختبارات القصيرة والقواعد. ولاننسى قاعة البحث (الذهاب إلى غرفة الحاسوب وإجراء بحث عن موضوع سيتم اختياره)

جزاكم الله خيرا وشكرا لكم تعاونكم
