PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Pulleys and Gears

This unit is my fourth grade unit on Pulleys and Gears (Simple Machines). It combines lessons on What is a Pulley, Mechanical Advantage, Types of Gears, How Simple Machines help us. This unit includes many hands on activities including experiments, demonstrations, and student inquiry. The culminating activity allows students to research, build and test pulley and gear system of their choice using the knowledge they built over the unit. Many lessons are based on an STEM / inquiry model where students discover and explore concepts alongside the teacher. It also includes a Wondering / Provocation board to help students learn about and engage with this unit in a meaningful way. With detailed lesson plans, and original information texts on various topics for this unit students will learn all about the amazing impact that pulleys and gears have on our daily life . This unit meets both the Ontario Science Curriculum and Common Core/Next Generation Science Standards

This unit includes

Detailed lesson plans
Task Cards
Wonder Wall Provocation Cards (great to start off you inquiry)
Games for Students

Background Notes for the Teacher
Interactive Notebook Reflection activities

Student Research links (including a link for students to access this list online)

I highly recommend that students have access to Pulley and Gear manipulatives and other school supplies that can be used to construct structures and see how pulleys and gears work. However this unit is easily accomplished without these specific pulley and gear supplies by omitting or modifying the final task.
