During this first half of the year, students in fourth grade have been exploring PUSH and PULL as part of their science unit of Forces and Movement. They have been experimenting with friction and recording their findings in different ways, including very interesting videos.
As a final task in this unit, they were invited to become EXPERTS investigating simple machines. They were assigned one of four simple machines, built their own models with recycled materials at home and then shared their "expertise" with their classmates in small group zoom sessions.
We are very proud of their hard work and cooperation skills!
