Simple Machines
in Action

Grades: 3 – 5
Successor to Wheels, Levers & Pulleys Learning Lab

 

Take a deeper dive into simple machines with a quantitative approach! Your students will be collecting data as they experience a more in-depth study of friction, wheels, pulleys, gears, inclined planes, wedges, and levers.
With an Instruction Booklet and reproducible Data Sheets, students will “do the math” as they continue to discover how simple machines make work easier, faster, or both. Students will work in cooperative groups at hands-on stations to observe, measure, and record their observations of simple machines at work.

 

Note: The Wheels, Levers, and Pulleys Learning Lab must be completed prior to the use of this program.
