Grade 4

Simple Machines

The grade 4 students are learning that Simple machines have been made to make our lives easier. The wheel and axle are an example of a simple machine.  This past week they were Order-Discovering as they made their own balloon powered car with wheels, axles, a water bottle, straws and balloons. It was a process that taught them perseverance and patience. God’s plan is always perfect and we can struggle to be patient and persevere when things don’t always go ‘our’ way!
