Fab 5th graders have learned ALL about electricity: circuits, switches, conductors, insulators, electrons, and SOO much more!! Time to put their knowledge to the test! Using LEDs, 9-volt batteries, Play-Doh, modeling clay & wire the kids had to create a simple circuit that would conduct electricity!! May designs FAILED in the beginning, but through collaboration and design improvement WE DID IT!!
Thanks for FREY Foundation for the supplies to make this possible!!
4th graders are learning how simple machines can make WORK easier. We ALL would like to use less effort to make objects move. After learning about these simple tools, we decided to put a lever to the test!!! These kiddos tested various scenarios, but determined that by moving the FULCRUM closer to the load heavier items could be lifted with less EFFORT!!
