"Mama" by my daughter age 3

Wednesday, March 7, 2012


2nd graders learned about joints and reflexes through an episode of THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS. Because he'd rather be playing ball, Ralphie wants to build a robot to do his chores. As he and his classmates struggle to make the robot, they discover the importance of knowing how joints and muscles work together.

2nd graders built a robot of their own. They were required to have moving arms and legs at the joints where our elbows and knees are. Once their paper and marker details were completed they got to go “shopping” for hardware to fill in their robot’s body.
