Working Together at Emma's Summer Academy

Ms. Robin Francis’ students at Emma Elementary School, from the Erwin, Enka, and North Buncombe districts, imagined playing ball together and accidentally losing the ball over a fence with dangerous equipment on the other side. They had to figure out how to get the ball back without climbing over the fence. Students passed around simple machines like an inclined plane, a wedge, and a pulley system and discussed in small groups how they could use these machines to help get the ball back. It was an exciting way to reintroduce the second graders to science and geometry concepts.
