Simple Machines Make Your Butter Better

It turns out… we love butter.  We also think this simple machine is fascinating.

Inside the gear box, we have 36 cogs on one gear and 12 cogs on the other.  This means that for every one turn of the handle, the paddles in the jug turn 3 times   (36 divided by 12 = 3).  That’s great bang for your buck!  We get a ton of work done with very little effort.

Snow Man Show Down

Oh, what a beautiful day.  7 degrees C. Sun shining. Kids laughing. Tons of exercise.

There was a whole lot of huffing and puffing involved in getting these snow people built. The snow was perfect – wet and sticky.  But these qualities also make it super heavy. We persevered and an army of snow men and women (and even one snow-alien) are now standing at the far end of the school playground.  Way to go, 4Wo! IMG_4558IMG_4580IMG_4579IMG_4567IMG_4560IMG_4570IMG_4563IMG_4572IMG_4559IMG_4569IMG_4576IMG_4573IMG_4566IMG_4578IMG_4581
