Today was a great day. I met my first group of 7th graders for the year. They did a great job. I was impressed at how well they worked together.
For our fist competition, my students made their own hammocks. One group held 3 golf balls, another 8 golf balls, and finally the last group held 15 golf balls.
We found out that a golf ball weighs 1.620 ounces. So the group whose hammock held 15 golf balls that was about 1 and half pounds of overall weight. I as pretty impressed.
We will see how well these stats hold up to the rest of the classes.
