Week of January 20th

This week the heroes have been learning about incline planes and kinetic energy.

Tuesday the heroes investigated inclined planes with how far a  marble would go depending on the slope.

Wednesday and Thursday the heroes worked in teams to make a marble move from the top of the pegboard to the floor.  The first challenge was for the marble to go across the floor and back, the second challenge was for the marble to fall into a cup.  The heroes practiced the skills of listening to all ideas, of having all team members take a part in the building, and of try, try and try again.

Today the heroes had fun with experimenting with dominoes and kinetic energy.  They worked with partners and drew or created designs and set up the dominoes to fall.
