Jan. 28, 2011 – Ms. Kitchen’s grade 5 science students have been studying about Structures and Mechanisms. These are the Big Ideas that they have been learning about:
- Structures and mechanisms throughout our environment have forces that act on and within them.
- We can measure forces in order to determine how they affect structures and mechanisms. This information can be used to guide the design of new structures and mechanisms.
The students designed “egg protection structures” for the Acme Egg Company. This video, filmed by Mr. Sornberger, displays their demonstrations.
