Simple Machine Construction
We have been learning about simple machines in school such a a ramp, lever, and wheels.  We learned that these simple machines help us to move objects and do work.  In small groups we used these materials to create our own machine and tested to see if it helped us move objects and do work. Then we recorded how our machines looked on our papers using paper shapes and crayons to add details.  

Comparing Weight
Using a balance scale we weighed classroom objects and compared.  We used language such a heavier and lighter as we placed objects on the scale.  Then we illustrated our results.
