Today in class students wrapped up their studies for simple machines; ck12.org, mikids.org, cosi.org, and Brain Pop were good resources!
Today in class students enrolled in a science class on ck12.org a free and very well done educational website. There are fresh resources about machines, simple machines, and mechanical advantage there.
Today in class students continued to study simple machines and mechanical advantage. By now everyone has a good knowledge of work, power, and can name the six simple machines.
Today in class students began to explore about work, power, mechanical advantage, and simple machines. We have text, Brain Pops, and a very good museum sponsored website about simple machines to check out this week.
Today in class students took the Forces Test and then worked on their circuits activities.
Today in class students got several options for wrapping up their learning about electrical circuits. While they do not all have to be completed, they all have good information about circuits, and will help with overall understanding.
Today in class students took a quiz on motion and energy, and then we discussed the different types of electrical circuits.
Today in class students reviewed Newton's Laws, and then began to learn about electrical circuits.
In class today students completed a Newton's Laws webquest and are almost ready for next week's test on Forces. Just need to study at home.
