Switched On!

Today was a pretty ordinary Wednesday. We worked on writing, we read the first part of a story in Treasures, and we corrected homework. After recess, things became a little more fun. The students were challenged to create an electrical circuit with a switch. Their goal was to make a small motor turn on and off. They work at it quite diligently.

But most of the groups figured it out pretty quickly; faster, in fact than just about any other class I can remember. Well done!
