2021-2022第二学期 PBL项目式学习| The Pasta Tower(意大利面塔)

首页    校园新闻    小学部    2021-2022第二学期 PBL项目式学习| The Pasta Tower(意大利面塔)

       一、Introduction简介

      I spy another super fun activity for our students! They love playing and looking for different objects in shapes and colors. They are so curious about colors, shapes, and the world around them! That's why I'm pretty sure that this 3D Shapes made of Pasta activity is perfect for any little learner working on learning their shapes. The brightly colored images of objects from the real world will engage them when they open this activity.  

     我们为学生们带来了另一个超级有趣的活动!同学们喜欢观察和玩不同的颜色、形状的物体。他们对颜色、形状和周围的世界都非常好奇!所以我很确定由意大利面组成的3D图形会非常适合他们学习形状。鲜艳明亮的色彩和现实直观的物体一定会吸引大家的。

      Children need to learn about 3D shapes in geometry from kindergarten and first grade onwards. Learning these 3D shapes helps children identify and organize visual information and help students learn skills in other areas. And since our current lesson is all about food, we incorporate food (the pasta) and shapes in this activity.  

      孩子们从幼儿园到一年级就要开始学习三维几何图形。学习这些3D形状可以帮助他们识别和组织视觉信息,并帮助学生们学习其他领域的技能。由于我们近期的课程都与食物有关,所以这次我们用食物(意大利面)和形状来展开活动。

       二、Real-Life Scenario现实生活场景

    This activity can be frustrating for children, and they will need more support and encouragement. Like in real life, some things cannot be done quickly. And we, parents and teachers, are required to guide them well in every step. However, they will have a great sense of achievement once they have mastered and accomplished the project. 

       这项活动也许会让孩子们感到有挑战性,有时也会感到沮丧,他们需要更多的支持和鼓励。就像在现实生活中一样,有些事情不能很快地完成。家长和老师,我们的职责就是要在每一步都好好地指导他们。然而,一旦他们掌握并完成了项目,就会有很大的成就感。

       三、Aim目标

       This project aims at three life learning’s: 

       本次项目旨在实现三项学习内容及能力:

       1. Increase and involves students being able to use shapes to describe an object in the

real world; 

       学生能够用形状来描述在日常生活中的对象;

       2. Learn a variety of problem-solving and sequencing skills;

学习解决问题应遵循的各种步骤和办法;

       3. Allows students to connect mapping objects in the classroom to real-world contexts 

regarding direction and place. 

       鼓励学生们把学到的内容延伸到我们的现实生活中去。

       四、Procedure过程

      With this activity, students can expand their exploration of different shapes, tension, and compression, just like engineers who build high-rise buildings and houses. We give our students some materials such as pasta, clay dough, and a ruler to provide 3D shapes independently and provide a pasta tower with their chosen partner. With the 3D shapes, they have to create two 3D shapes that we learn from our previous lessons. And with pasta tower, their job is to build a structure as tall and as strong as possible, using the available materials.

       通过这个活动,学生们可以扩展他们对不同形状、张力和压缩的探索,就像建造高层建筑和房屋的工程师一样。我们给学生们一些材料,如意大利面,粘土和尺子。学生们通过老师的指导独立尝试制作3D图形,并跟小伙伴一起制作意大利面塔。在3D图形制作这一步,学生们必须搭建两个我们之前课上学到的3D形状。在搭建意大利面塔这一步,他们的任务是用现有的材料建造一个尽可能高而坚固的塔。

       五、Reflections学生反馈

      Claire:"I felt nervous and got panicked while building the tower. And it would be more difficult when it gets higher and higher. But it was all worth it after all."

     “在建塔的时候,我特别紧张害怕。塔越高,搭起来就越困难。但最终的成品特别值得。”

       Shawn:"When I did the shapes, they were easy. But when I did the tower, I was shaking and wanted to quit. But I learned to be patient." 

     “当我做图形时,特别简单,但是当我搭塔的时候我特别紧张并且想放弃。我学会了做事要有耐心。”

      Alex:"It's hard to do a project with a specific number of materials as required. But it's easier to make the shapes than the pyramid using pasta." 

     “用有限的材料制作项目很困难。但是相比用意大利面搭金字塔,搭建图形更容易一些。”

      Ian:"Using pasta to make the tower is hard. It's too long and soft to make a tower. We need to focus." 

    “意大利面又长,又容易断,用来建塔特别困难,我们必须要集中注意力。”

     Tommy:"For me, I thought doing this project was easy. However, I realized it was hard to make a tower stand firm when I was doing it, so I tried a lot to finish it."

   “我本以为这个项目对于我来说会很容易,但是当我在制作的时候我发现想要让我的建筑坚固特别的困难,所以我尝试了很多方法来完成它。”
