Saving Fred in 3rd Grade

3rd-Grade students at Eastlawn did a teamwork lesson called “Saving Fred”. They had to work together to put the lifesaver/life preserver on a gummy worm without using their hands. Student groups had a plastic cup that represented the boat and the story that went along with the project explained that the boat flipped over in a storm. The challenge was to figure out a way to use the four paperclips and teamwork to slip the preserver out from under the boat and onto the worm. They loved it! This was also a great introduction to problem-solving and not giving up! #growbeyond
