I try to vary the resources I use and the type of tasks I ask the students to complete. This was their first time using the planks as well as the Slinky Dogs and cars. This was the first time I witnessed a significant amount of frustration from multiple groups in working together and forming one cohesive idea. I think that is one of the great benefits of STEAM in how students can learn some of the super important skills of working with others and learning to compromise. I learned that next week, as a class, we need to step back and revisit how to appropriately agree and disagree with one another as well as share ideas politely. Anytime is a good time to revisit these things!
