There are 3 main activities:
Vocabulary:
Introduce the vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. These posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too.

Next, have students read the informational articles about six simple machines. The articles come in black and white and color for multiple uses in the classroom. Have students complete the comprehension and connection questions, organizers mystery flaps, and cloze passage. There are three character studies for students where they will meet Isaac Newton, Archimedes, and Elijah McCoy. Students could work with a partner, in small groups, or even as a center/station activity to read and complete the activities.

Activities:
Have students complete the Force and Motion and Simple Machines Flip-Up Booklet. You could have them mix and match pages or complete both flip-up books. Students can build the flip-up book page by page. I usually have them do one page at each center or station. They can use the articles as a reference source to help them complete the pages of the flip-up. Lastly, they cut, color, and assemble the booklet. Flip-up books can be glued or stapled inside their interactive notebooks, file folder, or a 12x18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover.
