Minneota Group 3
Minneota Group 3 - the students were lucky when they arrived early and this was the last session for both of us. They asked to build a dam in the stream table after their session. So, the students built a dam and watched it fill up with water. Intently watching for the dam to fail, the excitement on their faces in anticipation

Marshall Group 2
Marshall Group 2 - students strategically setting all the toys along the edge of the river, so that they will fall in the river when the banks collapse
Luverne Group 1
Luverne Group 1 - students are excited as the banks start to collapse. They really like to see the school bus fall into the river. Fire trucks, livestock and the bridge are also favorites.
