Turkey Transporters

Turkey Transporters
Second-graders in Katelyn Rouskas STEAM classes at Meadow Drive have been following the engineering design process. In a recent project, students had to create Turkey Transporters that would get a turkey down a zipline that was constructed in the classroom. The activity gave a hands-on opportunity to reinforce classroom lessons on momentum and gravity, as well as the importance of having a growth mindset when approaching difficult tasks. The engineering design process had students questioning, imagining, planning, creating and improving their design in order to successfully transport their turkey down the zipline this holiday season.
