The third graders have been learning about different types of forces and simple machines. This week began with students becoming familiar with the VEX IQ kits and completing a scavenger hunt to get familiar with the different parts. Students have started following set directions on their iPads to build three simple machines: inclined plane, pulley and lever. Check out Seesaw to see pictures of the simple machines your student has been building.
This is my tenth year teaching and my second with Ann Arbor Public Schools. I spent the first eight years of my teaching career as a K-8 technology teacher. I joined AAPS last year as a Media Specialist and I am thrilled to be a part of PLTW this year! In my spare time I enjoy going to the gym, baking and spending time with family and friends!
