Imagine a world where you couldn’t turn on a light, a computer, or even use the phone! Obviously, electricity is important to us! Can you imagine a day without electricity?How would your day be different?
A current of electricity is a steady flow of electrons. When electrons move from one place to another, round a circuit, they carry electrical energy from place to place like marching ants carrying leaves. Instead of carrying leaves, electrons carry a tiny amount of electric charge.
Watch the video below and tell me something you learned about electricity in the bubble beside the post! I am excited to read them.

Bill Nye – The Science Guy – Season 3 Episode… by Bill-Nye-The-Science
Force is just a fancy word for pushing or pulling. If I push on something or pull on it, then I am applying a force to it. Force makes things move or, more accurately, makes things change their motion.
Sir Isaac Newton was one of the first scientists to study gravity and force.
Beside this post is a comment bubble tell me something cool you learned about in the videos!
If you have watched this show tell me in the comment bubble beside this post your favorite part of the show! 🙂
What would happen if today there were no forces? How would your day change?
After watching this video tell me how an activity( like playing soccer, setting the table) would change without forces.Put it in the comment bubble beside this post.
After watching this video about structures tell me 2 cool things you have learned in the comment bubble beside this post. Excited to read them!:)
I saw this last year and was immediately amazed at this little boys creativity. I thought it would be fun this year for the grade 3 class to create an arcade for their final structure challenge. We have made bridges and towers in the past.
Each student will create an arcade game from cardboard boxes and other recycled materials. They need to have rules to play the game. I am so excited to see how creative they will be.
Arch bridges are one of the most popular types of bridges, which came into use over 3000 years ago. Because of their design, stone and wood arch bridges became very popular during the Roman Empire, when architects managed to build over 1000 stone arch bridges in Europe, Asia and North Africa. Many of those bridges remain standing even today.
We are so excited to learn how to code! Click on the link below to get started! How far will you get building your code?
