Engineers are super important people!
In our opening classes together coming back from my maternity leave, Kindergartners are learning about the important work engineers do!
Our first taste of engineering came from Rosie Revere, Engineer. Rosie is challenged to make a flying machine, and with much hard work, she is able to do just that! She never gives up in her designing!
Our second taste of engineering came from Engineering Elephants. In our story, students quickly use patterned language to see that engineers make "stuff" like roller coasters, wind turbines, and race cards and do not make "stuff" like eggs, volcanoes, and rain clouds. Over the next few weeks, we will officially define technology and all of its characteristics!
Keep up the great work Kindergarten!
