 Title: Christmas Tree Problem Solving (12/08/09) Description: You were given the job of "stringing" paper ornaments on our Christmas tree as a class project. Did you work as a group to complete your task? What were some problems that you faced? How did you go about solving those problems?

Next,we colored it how ever we wanted to. Before that we had to cut it out. Then we had a really long piece of string.We put our snow flakes on the string.Then we had to problem solve how to put the snow flakes on the Christmas tree. We worked together really hard. It took a little while for us to find out how to put the snow flakes on. At last we found out how we were going to put the snow flakes on the Christmas tree.That is how we got the snow flakes on the tree.

We had to do a strategy. It was hard. The class put the ornaments apart because they were too close to each other.Then we went back and looked at them. They looked good.Then we are going to blog on the computer about this.This was a good strategy for us. It helped us become friends and to learn to help with stuff people do.

Next,we thought how we were going to wrap the string with the ornaments on the string, around the little Christmas tree.The ornaments are what we made out of red construction paper. We all had fun making ornaments for the little Christmas tree! Article posted December 9, 2009 at 08:35 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 473

But we didn't know how to put it on the tree.So we worked as a class to figure out the problem. We tested it and it worked. Article posted December 8, 2009 at 06:52 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 490

The only reason was cause what time I finished. The problem was some people said the tree looked ugly. Before I came the rest of the class was deciding whether to space the ornaments and if they spaced the ornaments equally apart and how far apart to put ornaments.

We had a problem with stringing the snowflakes and we had a problem with wrapping the snowflakes on the tree. We solved the wrapping and snowflake problem by spacing them.
