The Magical Minds have been investigating systems. First we looked in our classroom and found scales, an old drill, books and computers. We know they are systems because they have multiple parts that make the whole work. Here are some systems we have found around school:
A stereo has buttons, a cord, a handle, speakers and more.
A printers has paper, buttons, a tray, a paper feed, a display…
A Rube Goldberg machine has many different parts that make up the whole.
Tonight’s homework is to look around the house, store, etc… for systems. The Magical Minds have a reflection sheet to help guide their thinking.
