During the week of September 14 – 18, 2015 our 2nd grade students at St. Ignatius joined Cavanaugh STEAM and other participating Global Collaboration Day partner schools to study the book Rosie Revere, Engineer and what it means to be a creative problem solver. In the book, Rosie solves a problem for her uncle (Zookeeper Fred) by inventing a hat to keep snakes off of his head. After reading and discussing the book, students will plan and create prototypes of their own hats that will solve a problem of their choice. On Thursday, all the participating classes joined a Google Hangout session to share our thoughts on the book and then share some of the Problem-Solving hats the children created. Below are some pictures of our wonderful experience! During this Hangout session, we had the privilege of connecting with schools from North Carolina, Tennessee, Missouri, New Jersey and of course our host school in Michigan! Thank you to Sarah Clarke Stevens of the Cavanaugh Elementary STEAM School for inviting us to join this awesome project!
