Posted on Updated on

Students were given 5 pipecleaners, one life saver candy and a pair of scissors.

Mission: use the material provided to make a speed skater….and then you’ve got to make the skater stand on its own.

We made it stand!

But…the speed skater has 4 legs…? Keep trying. Back to the drawing board kids!
