First-grade students in Ms. Schmidt's class at Kramer Lane used their creativity and problem-solving skills to create a perch for their new friend Harry the Pom Pom. After discussing how buildings are constructed and understanding that the base of a structure is key to holding it up, students were then given specific materials in which to construct their own perch which would hold Harry and allow him to see what is happening in their classroom. This STEM activity allowed for students to plan, revise and test as they built the perfect perch.
