Rube Goldberg Machines:
We continue to investigate and build Rube Goldberg Machines, focusing on incorporating simple machines into our designs. The Magical Minds are exploring different materials and combining them in new ways in order to meet the expectations of this year’s challenge.
This week we review concepts and skills we have learned throughout second grade. Through math games, the Magical Minds will use what they know to solve new problems.
At the beginning of the year, the Magical Minds wrote autobiographies. This week we do it again. We look forward to comparing how their self-concepts have changed over the year.
