simple machines
  • This is the third of three modules third grade will complete this year. This module will take place every day during the students' science time from Mar. 23-May 1. However, the students will be integrating their science with technology, engineering, math, and language arts. They will also be using the Innovator Skills of collaboration, communication, critical thinking, creativity, and problem-solving throughout this module. 

    Students explore, design, sketch, and build both simple and compound machines that demonstrate the use of forces. They test the force of magnets and explore the interaction of the magnetic poles.  Students use the skills and knowledge gained in the module to solve an open-ended, real-world problem.
