As our last few days of 3rd grade wind down, we have been wrapping up our research writing, having some Random Acts of Fun, and doing a little science inquiry with Flying Hoops. After a wordless demonstration of how to build the flying hoop, the kids silently focused on doing it correctly. What followed was a little lesson on constants and variables plus taking data from trials to test your hypothesis. The kids were amazing! They have tested and observed, collected data and graphed it. They are already thinking of how they will modify their hoops to fly farther.
