creativity in MOTION...

For graduation, Gram gave me some money to buy something useful for my classroom. I decided to buy a kitchen cart with wheels from IKEA to use as a media cart for my laptop and LCD projector. As in traditional IKEA style, the cart came in a million pieces for me to happily assemble. The boys seeing the giant box in the living room, decided to put their creativity in motion- literally! With the help of our neighbor Jake, the boys created a go-cart in which they were intending to set on top of a skateboard and race down the driveway.
Davin tested the box to make sure they would fit inside first...
Then Hunter grabbed a helmet and was so excited to be the first to "head" down the driveway...
and the answer is no, the picture is not sideways...this was the result of the first test run...
It was fun listening to the boys put their heads together and engineer an afternoon of creativity.
