Science Simple Machine (Model) A simple machine is a mechanical device that changes the direction or magnitude of a force. The most notable of these are known as the \"six simple machines\": the wheel and axle, the lever, the inclined plane, the pulley, the screw, and the wedge, although the latter three are actually just extensions or combinations of the first three. To understand how this amazing feat occurs, students were given the materials of simple machines to assemble its parts into wheel and axle, the lever, the inclined plane, the pulley and the wedge. They came to know that mechanical advantage enables them to use less force to move an object, but they have to move it a longer distance.

French Puzzle Making Completing a puzzle, even the most simplest of puzzles sets a single goal to achieve. Tod- dlers and children must think and develop strategies on how to approach in achieving this goal. This process involves problem solving, reasoning skills and developing solutions which they can later be transferred into their personal/adult life. The French students were given an opportunity to create a puzzle and challenge other students to solve it. The accomplish- ment of achieving a goal brings so much satisfaction to a child. Overcoming the challenges involved in solving a puzzle really gives them a sense of achievement and pride within themselves. It provides a boost to their self-confidence and self-esteem as this prepares them for other challenges in life.

Math A little competition can inspire math students to greater achievement. The goal of  Math Wizard competition to be \"stimulate enthusiasm and a love for mathematics, introduce important mathematical concepts, teach major strategies for problem solving, devel- op mathematical flexibility in solving problems, strengthen mathematical intuition, foster math- ematical creativity and ingenuity, and provide for the satisfaction, joy, and thrill of meeting chal- lenges.\" Students were asked to solve a math paper that they have learned this year. Practicing for math wizard will help them to think critically logically etc. Students use problem solving skills to find the solution to the questions.
