To prepare our kindergarten students for their visit to Miller’s Hardware, Mr. Coryell gave a short demonstration on different types of tools and fasteners that you might see in a hardware store. Students explored various types of nails, screws, nuts and bolts. Mr. Coryell also showed how a hammer is used to pound in nails and remove them by becoming a lever. Screws and bolts were described as two simple machines put together (an axle and a wedge), and screwdrivers and wrenches were demonstrated to show how they are used to tighten or loosen them. The highlight was the cordless drill and impact driver!
