Angry Bird Project: Build the Structure

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.
