Rube Goldberg

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.

About The Author

My name is Nora Ibrahim and I am currently teaching senior Kindergarten and Grade 1 at Académie de la Capitale. I joined Académie de la Capitale in 2009, teaching students aged 3-6, definitely the best and, may I add, funniest age group! This job comes with great responsibility and equally great reward! My students' learning is my top priority and I hope to foster a love of learning and help them build a foundation for their years to come by the end of each academic year. This blog is full of the daily, weekly and monthly adventures that go on in my class! Enjoy!
