There’s a mouse in my house! Help!
Science is lots of fun, but kids don’t always think so. Let Annie show your 3rd graders how simple machines work in this delightful and whimsical balloon show.
In this show, we build the craziest Rube Goldberg-style mousetrap you’ve ever seen. Your students will be riveted as Annie explains how each machine works and then combines them at the end of the show to catch that pesky mouse.
Students in grades K-6 can benefit from this show. For the younger grades, we focus on how simple machines work and how they can work together to make something even more useful. For the older grades, they’re introduced to a bit more information on how machines use the forces of nature to do even more amazing things.
Even though this show is designed for K-6 audiences, this is especially motivating for your 2nd and 3rd graders, who are activity learning about simple machines with their physical science curriculum.
Speaking of Larry Moss, here’s the main website for How to Catch a Mouse. This show is performed by eight different performers around the US!
