Is the Ear Like a Rube Goldberg Machine?

Dear Parents,

In science class, we’ll be talking about the parts of the ear this week — and looking closely at how the ear helps us to understand what we are hearing.

For extra credit, students can write a paragraph describing whether or not the ear is like a Rube Goldberg machine. To introduce this activity, we watched the video below of a really cool Rube Goldberg machine in action.

Hope this helps,
