This project is aligned with the Ontario Grade 2 Science curriculum.
It is designed to culminate a unit on Simple Machines and asks students design a trap to catch a monster using simple machines. Students will have to think critically about the simple machines explored in the unit, consider how their various functions relate and how they help us to do 'work'.
This project asks students to plan and draw a design of their machine, reflect on its functions and answer questions, as well as orally explain how their trap works.
