Middle School/High School Language Arts
Elementary Literacy and Science
We just completed a fun unit on “Great Ideas”. In this unit we discussed how great ideas can make our lives easier, and change the way we live. We heard a story about the Wright brothers, and made our own gliders. We read about how telephones help us, and practiced making phone calls. We also came up with ideas for our own inventions.
One of the students’ favorite parts of this unit was learning about simple machines that help us every day. The students learned about inclined planes, screws, levers, wedges, wheels, and pulleys. They got to experiment with many different simple machines in the classroom. The students used materials around the room to create their own inclined plane, and levers. They did a great job working together to learn how simple machines can change the way we live.
