Let Them Build It, and Invite Others to Come

This is a bonus post.  I just had to share some of the great projects my students have done for the Global Cardboard Challenge.  Technically, the Big Event is this Saturday, October 5th, 2013 (check here for an event near you).  But we started small this year, and my gifted students (2nd-5th grades) are inviting their classmates to view their constructions and play the games during recess next week instead.  Here are some of the projects that they made.  If you did not get a chance to participate this year, I strongly urge you try to attend one of your local events and make an effort to get involved next year!  My hope for next year is to “charge for admission” so we can raise money for charity.

This student made a theater complete with a moving picture (turn the sticks to move it) and faux popcorn!

Two students worked together to make this Ping Pong table (with the help of a lot of green duct tape!)

It's hard to tell from the pic, but this student made a zoetrope.  Look through the tube and turn the straw below to see still pics come to life.
