In science we began the month learning about simple machines. The students looked at everyday items and identified the simple machines that make it up. Students learned what a force is and learned about friction which will lead us into our motion and design Einstien kit. Mrs. Mathu came in and spent the morning with us and did some science exoeriments about Newton's 3 laws of motion which was a great introduction for our science kit.The students learned a lot and had a great time.
