Force and Motion

In 3rd Grade Science we've been studying energy. We are learning about how it is stored, transferred, and it's different incarnations. Ask your child to show you and example of how friction is made.
When we learned about storing energy, we talked about the importance of fat, batteries, fossil fuels, and kinetic/potential energy. I also told the children about an experiment where they could build a battery out of nickels and pennies. Go to the Parent Resource Center (at the right of this post) for a link that will show you how to do this at home. I curious to hear about the results.
In this newsletter, I always love to share lesson related enrichments. In the link below, there is a
story about a young man who found a way to store is own energy in a unique and inspiring way.
