Grade 3 engineers created their own waterwheels this week! In their water and climate unit, students are learning about how waterwheels were used in the past and how they have innovated over the years to harness and produce energy. Using only a few objects, students were challenged with creating their own waterwheels and answering the essential question: what is needed to make the waterwheel system function well? After their experiment, they created a chart of what went well and what was challenging in creating their water wheels.
It "Wheel-y" Works in Grade 3!
