Take Apart Day!

Fourth graders had a chance to get their goggles on and their hands dirty on Friday, February 22 as they disassembled over 80 pieces of mechanical or electronic equipment. Scheduled at the conclusion of their science unit on simple machines, the students armed with screwdrivers and other tools, dismantled a variety of appliances, cameras, phones, computers, and printers. Working together they gained hands-on experience and discovered that many complex machines are powered by simple machines. 

See all the joy here.
