The third grade has been learning about simple machines for the whole month of January. As a celebration of what they learned, each student made their own simple machine to display at the simple machines fair for the rest of the school as well as their parents. The students’ creativity and ability to apply what they learned was very impressive. The machines were all different shapes and all different sizes, but they all were able to scientifically do work using one or a combination of the six simple machines. The projects ranged anywhere from catapults, to dog feeders, to homemade mouse traps. It was a great event to take part in.
