First graders have been learning about simple machines in science. They were so excited to see their learning in action today in the 6th grade science classrooms. EFS 6th graders shared their paper roller coasters and their Rube Goldberg machines with first grade students. First graders saw pulleys, inclined planes, and levers used to create some unique and imaginative science projects. Some of their favorites were: How to Staple Paper, How to Brush your Teeth, and the roller coaster modeled after the Disney World Castle. Thank you 6th grade science students!

On a beautiful Tuesday morning, third graders explored many of the interesting habitants of the Reinstein Woods pond. They enjoyed observing them in a magnified container - counting legs and learning about their gills.
