Also, here's a peak of the Simple Machines picture sort from my Inventors bundle.
We discussed how problems fuel inventions. We discussed why we think silverware and chairs were invented, as well as many other "common" objects. We discussed how we are still faced with problems that are currently unanswered. The kids chose one of five problems to brainstorm solutions for and then toy around with solutions for these problems. The task cards are also included in the Inventions bundle. Unfortunately, the teal construction paper didn't photograph really well. I just wasn't at the top of my game today with photography! Sorry ladies! :) Beyond that, their posters are unfinished, so we will be working with them again tomorrow to wrap this lesson up! You can click on any of the pictures for a closer look...
