Title: Motion and Design (03/13/08)
Description: This is a reflection on our recent Einstein unit on motion and design.

Article posted March 18, 2008 at 10:08 AM GMT-6 • comment • Reads 118

Tell two or three things you have learned from Motion and Design that you think are important.



* Well I have learned that to get a car to move you have to have an axle and you have to get the axle to move in order to move the car.







How well did you and your partners work together? Give some examples.



* I think when I worked with my partners they got angry because I was always yelling at them and I am almost always cranky on school days because I have to get up to early.







How did you like working with the K'nex in this unit? Did you get more comfortable working with them as time went on?

* The K'nex were the best part because they were fun to connect. Yes they got easier to use as the time went on. The K'nex were very hard to connect until we did some more work with them.







What activity in this unit did you enjoy the most?

* When we got to experiment on the cars and build our own cars.





Was there a part of this unit that you still don’t understand or confused you?

*No not really if there was one time it was probably when we had to make the two story car from looking at the technical drawing it made it harder to figure out but we got through it.







How do you feel about science after doing this unit?

*Really to tell you the truth the same as I did before but not really different.

*It needs a rubber band to move. A sale does not move it. The propeller works.







How well did you and your partners work together? Give some examples.



*Marty and I worked really good together.







How did you like working with the K’Nex in this unit? Did you get more comfortable working with them as time went on?

*I liked working with the K’Nex. Yes I got more comfortable as the time went on.







What activity in this unit did you enjoy the most?

*I enjoyed the propeller the most.





Was there a part of this unit that you still don’t understand or confused you?

*No there was not.

Helooooooo,my Jelly loving friends! Yes, this is me, the Jellyman writer himself, but, alas, I have to talk about science. Well, lets start with what kind of science. We are doing motion and design, and, it was kind of fun cause we got to make cars with K-nex. Working cars! Here are 3 things we did with our cars:1,we used rubber bands to make our cars move.2,we were supposed to use wind power to make them move,but we didn't have enough timeto, so I'm sorry.but this blog is overdue. Sorry!

*I already knew how to use them. But I learned more as we progressed.





What activity in this unit did you enjoy the most?

*I liked the part when we used the propellers and the moon rover.





Was there a part of this unit that you still don’t understand or confused you?

*I understood most of it except when we used the propeller.



How do you feel about science after doing this unit?
