Year 3/4 Integrated Studies

Package it Better 2016

The Grade 3-4 students learned about packaging during Term Two. In groups, they had to design a package which was waterproof, able to be posted, able to protect a fragile gift and environmentally responsible. This involved a lot of experiments (and some taste-testing of our ‘fragile gift’- biscuits!) My favourite part was seeing students apply important new vocabulary such as ‘hypothesis’ and ‘impact.’  Students really enjoyed themselves in this topic.
