2nd Grade have been learning about gears and simple machines using the Lego WeDo kits in our maker space.  Student built a gator and spinning top and observed the different gears we put in the design.  We used a gear train that included a crown gear and learned how to program the gator to move its mouth and the spinner to spin at different speeds.
