Pulleys

Today Room 9 learnt about pulleys.
We used our SOLO Three Layers of Learning map to frame our thinking and extend our learning.
After researching, we defined what a pulley is, described its parts, explained how a pulley works and listed examples of pulleys in action in real life.
We were then set the task of creating a pulley system to raise a flag up a flag pole.
Students worked in teams to select a country. They then researched the flag of their chosen country and famous buildings that are found there.
Finally, they were given a list of required materials and then set to work on figuring out how to construct their model.
Here are the designs completed so far.





Great problem solving Room 9 👍
