Remember the book order flyers?
We have been comparing lengths of objects. This week, we tried taking a handful of colored pencils and putting them in order from shortest to longest. This was a challenge that took a lot of concentration!
We explored how pushing and pulling objects can create motion by doing two experiments. In the first experiment, students were given a toy car and had to build a ramp to make the car travel as far as possible. The next week, we had our fifth grade buddies help us to make catapults using a spoon, rubber bands, and popsicle sticks. Then they launched pom poms to see how far they could go!
