Sixth Grade – The sixth grade spent 6 weeks working on their amusement park. Below are some of the rides that they created.
Third Grade – The third grade is exploring gearing. We built two different types of merry-go-rounds. One used gearing up and the other gearing down.
Now the children are building either a revolving sign for the circus or a game with moving targets. We have had some very creative ideas.
The third graded continued to explore gearing up by making hand mixers with Lego bricks.
Fifth Grade – The fifth grade is exploring simple machines. We began with first, second and third class levers. They then designed a device that would help the elderly pick up things from the floor without bending down.
After exploring wheels and axles the fifth grade build wind-powered vehicles. It was amazing the number of different “sails” that were used and the different ways to attach those sails.
Then the fifth graders learned about pulleys and made fishing rods.
Fourth Grade – The fourth grade designed and built a Mars Rover. Then they programmed the Rover to move around the Mars landscape and rescue 3 injured astronauts.
