The chain from Iceland

Hello all
Here comes our part in this project. It took blood, sweat and tears to finish it, but here it is. But after watching a few videos of chain reactions our students had a brainstorming session on how their chain should look like. In the end they desided that their chain should be the outline of their home country, Iceland. We had a few rehearsals in our classroom which went well. The final lineup went very well and the class shoved a great teamwork. We really enjoyed working on this project and encourage others to do the same or simular projects. We hope you enjoy it.
Teachers and students in grade 6 in Flataskóli.

  1. Hi to all over there in Iceland,

    We liked is that you made the outlines of your country! We think you did a fine job setting up all those books and letting them fall without any interruption! Congratulations!

    Kind regards,

    Dave
