The students worked on their Angry Bird structures today. They used the guidelines given on the Angry Bird Project instruction sheet:
Using an order form, students determined the supplies they needed and brought the form and their $10 (play money) to purchase the supplies.
I also expected the students to keep a balance sheet of their daily expenditures.
I felt these elements were very important as I want them to understand the "real world" applications of this activity. I also wanted them to realize that money and even supplies are sometimes limited. Students were also limited to a working time of 60 minutes today.
