The skype was so much fun!
We talked to Mr.Moeckel’s brother!
This was the best skype yet!
He is not an architect, but he worked with them.
He was a engineer.
He designs buildings.
We asked questions.
My question was what inspired you to be an architect?
His answer was he is not an architect but he liked to build when he was younger like me.
We skyped with Mr. Rick Moeckel.

After specials we had science. We had to build a levee with partners. We had to work with cotton balls, sticks, straws, tape, sandbag and a sponge. Then we tested the levees. Then we gave them names. When we tested them, we watched if anyone didn’t get the water through the levee but it happened to everyone. The next day we fixed our levees, timed it and one person won. By Trey and Iker
Today in science we tested handmade mini levees. There were 6 groups building a levee out of duct tape, sand, 1 bag, sponges, straws, popsicle sticks and cotton balls. The groups were China levee, levee king, chili bob, titamiam, ghost wall and unstoppable taco! By Maya and Max
We are a 3rd grade class learning about the world.
