It was wheel day today.  The kids used all the simple machines we’ve discussed so far (inclined plane, lever, wedge, and wheel) to make this own machines.  
  
  Hunter is explaining how the energy travels through his machine. 
 And what a surprise on our walk this morning – a REAL machine doing work.  We watched for a bit and the kids pointed out the different simple machines they saw on the backhoe.
