Timothy, and his 4th grade classmates at Morse, constructed leprechaun traps as a science project.  Of the five simple machines: inclined plane, screw, pulley, lever, and wedge, they had to use three.  The children were very excited to display and demonstrate their traps yesterday afternoon. In addition to the use of green paint and gold coins, there were many clever uses of recycled items and toys repurposed into the traps.  Wes and I slowly walked around the room, stopping at each trap to see how it worked.  It was an hour well spent and we came away with an appreciation of the creativity of Morse kids and parents.
