TUESDAY IN THE OAK ROOM
Today was a busy creation day in the Oak Room. Children were creating a ramp for their race cars. The children looked at a picture of a ramp on a tablet, and formulated their ideas together based on how they thought they wanted their ramp to look like. Then they got cardboard and packaging tape, cut the pieces to make a big long road. The children had to work together to figure out how long they wanted it and how high they wanted it to go. Finally, after a few trial runs they wanted to tape 5 long pieces together to form the track, as well as taping it to the window for the slight angle so their cars wouldn’t stop.

"This can go here" - Divine
"We need to tape it right here" - Logan
"Let's do it together to see which one is faster" - Mathias
"Ok, 1-2-3 GO!" - Divine
Trying out the finished track!!
