Watch Out For Those Little Leprechauns!

March 24, 2017

Simple machines trap leprechauns thanks to our 2nd graders, who had a wonderful time creating these specialized traps!

Students studied simple machines as they were tasked with creating a trap that utilized at least three simple machines. They had a limited amount of materials, but their creativity and understanding of how simple machines worked led to some incredible projects.   

Students wrote about how their simple machines would make the work of catching the leprechaun easier. This is an example of a cross-curricular learning experience, involving both Science and Writing.  The kids have already started thinking about how they can improve upon their traps for next year!
