Marble run

This is our Rube Goldberg Machine that we spent all day making! Here's a quick snap of what we did, stay tuned for an explanation.


On Friday morning miss King told us to make our marble run. Before we could make it we needed to get our stuff. So when Thea and Jordenne and Sela got their stuff, we got building our our marble run.
Before we started building we made a plan and our plan turned out great. So when finished making our plan on our marble run we started building.
So we put the train track together and when we finished that we got the toilet rolls and taped it together. When we finished that we got the toilet rolls and taped it together and while I was tapping it on to the train track Thea put the tissue box under the toilet rolls so the toilet roll can kind of go down a bit. So we put up the Domino's and then we thought it was finished so we had a practice but we were not finished. So miss King came and helped us and she had to adjust our toilet rolls and our track. Then we had a practise and it was fine. So we had to try it again and miss King was taking a video of it running down and while miss King was taking a video it turned out fantastic so then we said “YAY!” we did it. We were proud of our selves and miss King was proud of us. We used technology and team work.

  1. Well done Mary and team on a great job making a marble run! You should be proud of yourselves, it sounded a little tricky from your writing but I'm glad you persevered and completed it. I can't wait to see what other cool things your wonderful teacher has planned for you.
