Next Unit: Levers and Pulleys

Posted by iateacher on November 7, 2007

Hello parents, guardians and students:

Just a note to tell you about our next science unit.  We will be starting a unit on levers and pulleys.  This is a kit based unit that will take us through about winter break to complete.  We are trying this kit out to see if it fits our curriculum and if we should make it a permenant addition to our new curriculum. 

Some of the things students can look forward to in this unit are:

  • learning about and working with levers
  • understanding the three classes of levers
  • learning about and working with single fixed pulley systems, single movable pulley systems, and double pulley systems

This is a very hands on and team-based approach.  There is  much, much more in this unit and I am really looking forward to teaching it.  Be sure and ask your child about what they are doing in this unit.
