Discovery Day

Discovery Day, 5th grade students were allowed to select one object from a tray placed on each table. Then they were given the following guidelines: Each table would work as a team (designated by their color tray of object) all teams were given the same basic contruction supplies, small Styrofoam base, cut bit of a straw, yarn, paper clip, 6 inches of tape, small paper plate...
They had 10/15 minutes to create a group sculpture, give it a title and a brief description such as where would this be displayed, how big would it be, does it do anything...?
Each sculpture had be able to be transported to the front table on two plastic spatulas. All members of the group had to be involved in the presentation.
