  1. Ms. Burn's 4th grade class, Healey school, Spring 2013

    We thought that this activity may have been too difficult for 4th graders. A lot of them ended up with projects that restricted all movement of the knee or projects that plastered as much material as possible into the broken knee to fix it instead of having a strategy to solve the problem. The discussion went well and students were able to recognize the constraints and limitations of the situation.  

    This activity can be spread out to multiple classes, especially if each STOMP class is only less than an hour long. More time can also be allotted to allow students to redesign.

    (We have tried this activity with a few 6th - 7th graders and they were better able to grasp and solve the problem)
