Leo F. Giblyn Elementary School second grade dual language students and their parents worked together on a Thanksgiving themed STEAM challenge.

They designed and constructed a farming tool that the pilgrims could have used to till, cultivate and clear the land. The tool also needed to dig holes. Students and parents took their challenge to the next level by making their tool be able to irrigate the land as well. 

The teams had to select the materials, discuss the plan, construct the tool, and present it to the class. Some teams changed their design to make improvements or adjustments if it was unsuccessful. 

This activity was done in both languages, Spanish and English. The parents and children had a wonderful time throughout the planning, designing and engineering process.
