Science - from the desk of Mrs. Liporto
After vacation in science we will be
starting another Science Court case to
apply the knowledge we have learned about
simple machines. In Science Court: Work &
Simple Machines, Mr. Sludge accuses Mary
Murray of being the laziest worker at
Robocorp because she never breaks a
sweat. But is Mary lazy or just smart? The
students will become the jury in this
exciting case.
