Yesterday, we tried to lift our teacher, Mrs. Kynigou. Our materials were: 19 students, a load (the teacher), a wooden board, and a wooden block. When it was my turn, I put the wooden block as close as possible to Mrs. Kynigou to see if I can lift her up. My thinking was that the closer I put it to Mrs. Kynigou, the more chance I had to lift her up. So, Mrs. Kynigou stood on one side of the board, and I stood on the other side. Guess what?! I lifted her up! Hooray!
The other students did the same as me, but some other students wanted Mrs. Kynigou to lift them up. Also, some students put the block in the middle of the board. We all had fun! This was a really nice, fun and interesting experiment.
What I learned with this experiment is that you have to think of where to put the fulcrum so you can lift up your teacher. I found it easy! What I also learned is that fulcrum can be that strong. Overall, it was really fun!
Tell us what you thought when you made your try out and what you discovered.
