Ms. Read at Cardboard Races on Wednesday, April 27th

Ms. Read will be taking 2 teams of intermediate students to the Lindsay Recreation Centre on Wednesday, April 27th.  Each team will consist of 4 students.

 

Why?  It’s the TLDSB’s annual Cardboard Race Competition!  For the past several years, the TLDSB has organized a competition in which students have to use limited materials (just cardboard and tape, I believe) to plan and build a cardboard boat which will travel the length of the pool.  Aside from the obvious fun involved, there is also a great deal of skill and creativity required.  This “thinking outside of the box” is a highly valued skill in school and life – which makes this an outstanding event for students.

 

Enjoy yourselves, students!
