Yep, this term's focus is Inventions. We have watched a lot of Youtube clips on Inventions and have even had a competition for the tallest tower made with restricted resources. That was a lot of fun! We are currently working through a big management plan each, using pictures and words to explainn the ideas we've come up with during the times we've looked at the Thinker's Keys. We covered the BAR (Bigger, Add, Repalce) Key, Disadvantages Key and the Combination Key. Now, individually or in pairs (I'm working with my friend) we are to invent something for the Inventors Fair with the pssibility of selling it within the school. Now that we have an idea, it is getting to be quite enjoyable, because, after all, that's all we really need, isn't it? - An idea. We are going to make a "thing" that wil hold your recipe book for you while you bake or cook. It is double sided so on the other side you can clip up recipes on paper with the provided clip. This forms a triangle and the middle of it can be used as storage space (e.g, eggs that need to be kept out of the sun!). It will be on wheels and hopefully extendable ones so that the height of our contraption can change. Oh, and it should have a handle for easy transportation. Maybe in time it will have an added scale!

This is my friend and I's invention...
