Line Rollercoaster

1st Grade Line Rollercoasters 

We love our rollercoasters! The students manipulated paper strips to create exciting rollercoasters. Does your rollercoaster go upside down? How fast does it go? How tall do you have to be to ride?

Sammy the Snake helped us review different types of lines by contorting his body to form curvy lines, zigzag lines, loops, and more.






After the strips were glued to the white paper we began to draw and color cars to add to the rollercoaster.

This is my favorite project of the school year! Each robot has a name, function, and price. I love that each one is so unique.


First, each student completed an idea worksheet to plan out what their robot would look like and how it would function. How will it help people? 

Next, they cut light-weight cardboard into different shapes to form the robot.

Then, the robot was painted with tempera paints.

Finally, the robot was packaged as a toy. Each toy is labeled with a name, function, and price.










 We were super excited to have a Robot Toy Store in the Principal's Office!
