Let’s Catch a Leprechaun!
On March 16th, the third grade students from Mountain Green Elementary School participated in a Simple Machines Fair in preparation for catching Leprechauns that night. Each student created his/her own machine using a pulley, wheel & axle, lever, inclined plane, screw, or wedge. The students could use as many simple machines as they wanted for their catcher. It was amazing to see the creativity displayed by the students and their understanding of how effective simple machines can be for catching the “wee folk.”
Wedding Bells at Morgan Elementary!
We all know that Q can’t do anything without U. But do children really understand that?? Mrs. Carpenter’s Kindergarten class decided to have a wedding to help them understand that Q & U are always together in words. They are partners. We held a fabulous wedding, complete with bridesmaids, groomsmen, wedding cake, and bubbles. What a GREAT day!!!
