Not So Simple . . .Simple Machines 2012


The following podcasts were created by 4th grade students to describe an invention that would help make the world a better place.  Art, technology, science, and writing were all integrated into this unit.  Artwork created during art class depicted a detail view of their simple machine including gears pulleys and levers.  Machine descriptions were written and edited during Language Arts (Thank you Mrs. Matt, Mrs. Riehle, Mrs. Durkin, and Mr. Kohut for your wonderful support!)  Podcast recordings and compositions were created during art class time in the computer lab using Garageband software under the direction of Mrs. McGee.
