5th Grade Collection Tool Challenge

Mrs. Brown's 5th grade students were challenged to create a collection tool that would enable them to collect "moon rocks".  The tool was to be able to collect rocks weighing one pound, and to be able to hold them for 20 seconds in their collection tool. The students were given the instructions of creating a tool that would allow them to collect the rocks without being able to bend at the waist due to the restriction of a space suit and limited mobility in their hands because of gloves.  Click on the photo to the right to see some of the samples of the collection tools that were created by the students.
