Product Description
Simple & Compound Machines (Science)
Appropriate for grades 4-7 & Homeschool


PURPOSE:
This graphic organizer will help your students in exploring how we use simple and compound machines in our everyday lives. First, have them brainstorm items that contain the six simple machines in four different areas of their houses. Then on the second page, students explore everyday household items that contain 2 or 3 simple machines.

WHAT’S INCLUDED:
This product contains:
         ☆2 Pages of graphic organizers to explore simple machines
         ☆Answer key for compound machines included

STORY:
After watching Bill Nye’s episode about simple machines, my students were interested in exploring more of the topic. Our discussion also moved into the realm of compound machines. The next day, I created for them this graphic organizer and we had a table group competition to see who could name the most household items containing simple machines.

POSSIBLE EXTENSIONS:
After completing this activity with your class, you can also have students think of an item and let classmates guess which simple machines can be found in it. In class, this was my lead up to conversations about potential and kinetic energy. In that unit, we had students build Rube Goldberg machines, and this knowledge was very helpful in the successful creation of those machines.

MATERIALS/PRE-REQS:
Besides this file, you may require:
         ☆Some knowledge of simple machines
