The Kindergarten Robins and Owls experienced the Simple Machine Expo today! Students have been learning how Simple Machines make work easier and our teachers have integrated the machines into their daily academic lessons. A catapult is used to play a word toss activity, a pulley system is a math game and a hammer is used as a lever to write sight words in nail brads. The inclined plane was a vowel activity! And the nail brad is an example of a wedge! Simple Machines are used all around us - wheel barrows, shopping carts, fishing rods - next time you are at the GPS flag pole ask a Kindergarten student to explain a pulley system! #SimpleMachineExpo #GPSKindergarten #GPS #BrainBuilding
