Students in Mrs. Harrell’s 2nd grade class worked in cooperative groups today and they applied design strategies into making replicas of the Mayflower.  Students were to contruct a model that would hold ojbects and be able to float in water.  After creating and testing their designs, students discussed why their model sank or float and how they could modify their design so it would float.  Our students loved this problem solivng STEAM challenge!
