Kindergarten Fall Trimester with Ms. Rosemarie Biocarles-Rydeen
Make Way For Ducklings
Create a way for the the ducklings to get safely across the road!
We kicked off our Engineering in Literacy Project with Ms. Jacobsen who shared the story of "Make Way for Ducklings" by Robert McCloskey.
The problem: How can we get the ducklings safely across the road?
Our story: Using only paper, string, a plastic cup, masking tape, craft sticks, and foil, the kinder kiddos engineered some creative ways of getting the ducklings across the road.
