Learn facts about animals!
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!
Here’s what we’ve been up to in centers this week… Working on our trash to treasure projects Making 3D shapes with magnetic rods Building with blocks and Legos
We completed our study of animal needs and fact writing with an engineering challenge. Working in teams, students had to build a habitat for their animal.
