Each Friday for the rest of the year, the Intermediate Unit will further their study on Simple Machines. We are working with Lego, a computer tutorial/game at Edheads, rulers, spoons, pencils, pulleys, bikes, etc. As we increase our understanding by doing these various activities and exploring all of the simple machines around us, we are getting ready for our favorite biannual event: Take Apart!
In the last week of May we will spend part of our time working on taking apart a common household item (VCR, Radio, Printer, Toaster, etc.). If you have a non-functioning item that you were just going to throw away, let Heidi know—it might be great for take apart!
