We will start the MCA science test tomorrow.  We have been cramming and reviewing and jumping ahead and working working working on all things science for the last 2 weeks.  The good news is, we can be done with that!  We will now get to actually build flingers and pulley systems which is more fun than reading about them.  Just remember, we use simple machines to reduce the effort needed to accomplish a task--move a load.  Also, it often changes the direction of the force needed.  For example, if you want to life something up, you pull down on the rope or wire running through the pulley system you set up.  So much to know, so little time!

Now that we are done cramming for science we will use the computers to focus on the upcoming MAP reading test.  That will be fun!!
