Kids and their K'Nex Kits

Students in Mrs. DeSoto's fifth grade science classroom had the opportunity to build simple and compound machines using K'Nex kits purchased through a Fayetteville Education Foundation grant Mrs. DeSoto received.


After reading "The Simple Story of the Three Little Pigs and the Scientific Wolf, " students used to the kits to explore how levers, pulleys, gears, and inclined planes work in everyday life.

 

Students commented that the kits were "cool," "fun," and that they loved "getting to build simple machines."
