The Rube Goldberg fair is coming up and while we are not participating in the contest we will still be making a very simple machine. Our machine will not exceed 5 steps and I am confident we will be able to accomplish this! This morning, I showed the kids the videos below and once they watched them, they had some pretty fantastic comments that demonstrated a beginning understanding of what a Rube Goldberg machine is. We came up with some ideas of materials we could use and we will start experimenting with some ideas shortly!
Check these videos out at home with your child and discuss the project further. I’ll ask everyone about the ideas they discussed with mom and/or dad.
