Les voitures à réaction

This is an example of interdisciplinary activities of the 2nd and 3rd grade class.

During the science class (Decouverte du Monde), we are studying the properties of air as a gas-(properties of matter). In groups of three, the children discovered and read (reading) the manufacturing sheet of a jet car. They then had to ask for the necessary material (practice of oral language), and agree (debate) on each building step. They had to trace, measure (geometry) and cut, then assemble and build the car (technology).
Once the cars were built, they were able to decorate and test them!
Vroum, vroum: we discovered some properties of matter and the reaction principle while using many other skills, and most importantly, while having fun!!!
