Third graders in Ms. Beard’s class at Tackan Elementary School are learning how to create simple machines during a hands-on Project Lead the Way lesson on Jan. 7. Using Vex kits and working in small groups, the students are working on a unit on stability and motion. During the lesson on simple machines and forces, the students had to find all the parts in the kit and then follow step-by-step instructions on the iPad to complete the build.
