This past week, there has been lots of energy in the Discovery Lab with our 3rd graders! They have had hands-on experiences with all of the simple machines: wedge, inclined plane, pulley, screw, wheel and axle, and levers. Students were challenged to identify how each simple machine makes work easier as well as how it can create a change. Below are some great pictures of our students in action!
