Explore Science Labs, Plant Science, and more!

This is part 2 of a 6 part hands-on unit on Inventions and Simple Machines. Build and test catapults, lift an adult using a lever, test out screws of various threads, and more! My lessons are geared toward 3rd-4th grade level children and their siblings. These are lessons I created to do with a weekly homeschool co-op. We meet each week for 2 1/2 hours and have 13 children between the ages of 1-13. Use these fun lessons with your classroom, family, after school program, camp, or co-op!
