Spectacular Science- Exploring Pulleys and Gears

In science, we are sometimes able to borrow fantastic learning kits from HWDSB’s Kit Services. Some of them are in hot demand across the boards schools, so we can’t always be too picky about when we get them.  This week we put our study of Habitats on hold to jump into our upcoming unit of Pulleys and Gears. These amazing LEGO kits have kept our class super engaged. Through these kits, we have explored different types of gears and pulleys. We have looked at how they make things move and how they make work easier.
