Rich Sentences - 4th Grade

I enjoy a well constructed, adjective rich sentence in the same way I enjoy an indulgent Hollandaise or Alfredo sauce. Today my 4th grade class learned this sentence: "I used jewelry pliers with conical jaws to make torsion springs that resist twisting".

The class is using these springs for another project with popsicle sticks. At each stage in a project I like to take a moment to think about a sentence I can share with students that summarizes what they built. In this case we also touched on Geometry, Physics, and Tradecraft while talking about bending a paperclip.

 There are three springs in this picture. Can you find them?
