Let’s Catch a Leprechaun!
On March 16th, the third grade students from Mountain Green Elementary School participated in a Simple Machines Fair in preparation for catching Leprechauns that night. Each student created his/her own machine using a pulley, wheel & axle, lever, inclined plane, screw, or wedge. The students could use as many simple machines as they wanted for their catcher. It was amazing to see the creativity displayed by the students and their understanding of how effective simple machines can be for catching the “wee folk.”
