This week I am making a model of a playground with Sam, Liam and Sean.
Something that's working well is the swing set because we all participated with making it. It also went well because we had a clear picture in our mind of how we wanted it to look.
A struggle for me is getting everyone to stay on task because they get sidetracked very easily and only help a little. But they can help sometimes.
An improvement we could make is our seesaw because so far it is not working that well and I don't understand how Liam is making it. We could fix this by experimenting different ways to do it.
Our next step is to finish making our playground equipment and stick it onto our base.
