Energy Science Lab

Students are learning force times distance.


Brenda’s Energy Science class are working on simple machines. They are working on a pulley systems, she wants them to learn how to move a brick with a toothpick, without putting in more work than they have to. She wants them to learn a practical skills that can help them in the future. Perhaps, if they have to move heavy objects upstairs they could utilize a pulley system and move it that way. Brenda is also having her science kids answer a daily journal questions.” Their learning target on this particular day was,  “I can apply the concept of force times distance as evidence by creating a plan (with explanation ) to lift a brick with a toothpick.” Hopefully, they can apply what they have learned in their future endeavors.
