ES Quest: Session 4 Week 2

This week in our Architecture Quest, the heroes continued to make design plans for their very own Acton Academies. Mr. Christian came in to introduce them to the concept of scale—shrinking real world measurements down to fit on a drawing.

With scale rulers in hand, the heroes started sketches of their very own Acton Academies. They had fun dreaming up the spiral staircases, rooftop gardens, and mini-golf courses that would make up their ideal learning environments.

Working in pairs wasn’t always easy, but the heroes brainstormed about all the good that comes from teamwork, and talked about how they could address the challenges that come with collaboration.
