SAVY 2019: Session 4, Day 5 – Creative Contraptions (The Wesbys) (Rising 1st/2nd)

Posted by on Friday, July 12, 2019 in Grade 1, Grade 2, SAVY.

This was a fantastic week of learning, inventing, collaborating, communicating, creating, and problem-solving. Our students were awesome. They were challenged to develop deeper connections between the concept of “System” and “Simple Machines.”
Students were encouraged to answer the following questions this week:
Do we need simple machines?
What simple machines are not made yet?
What materials can be used to make simple machines?
A wheel and axle is a simple machine?
To recap our week, check out this video we put together of some of the topics we studied at SAVY: https://gopro.com/v/qzKEn1b7PrRLE.
We have enjoyed every moment working with our scientists. This was a great week, and we enjoyed every minute. Until next time, thanks SAVY students and parents!
