To end our theme about schools then and now we did a grade level project. The kids were given a mission to design and create the longest chain they can out of the materials given. This was pretty challenging for them but they did an amazing job working together. Once they finished we had them connect their chain with another group to show them what can happen if we all work together. Then we took it to another step and combined our chain with the other grade 1 class. This made them see that if our whole school community joins together we can achieve amazing things.
