Third Grade Creates Some Fun!

This week Ms. Eckerlin’s and Mr. Ferrero’s third grade classes went to the Eli Whitney Museum on a field trip with their writing buddies. While they were there they explored the forces of motion. They set to work building their own pinball machines using wood, nails, elastics, and glue. They had to figure out how to make their game work so the ball travelled through the game and gave the player chances to win.  It was amazing to see how creative the students were when designing their games. Each student got to take home their pinball machine to show off their skills and share the fun with their family.
