Is it a simple or compound machine review and gallery walk puzzler
I used this as an end of year review to review and reinforce my 7th grade students.
My classes always enjoy doing these.
Includes a 41 slide power point which includes a definition review of the following words for students to copy down on their sheet.
Wheel and Axle
(students have a 2 sided sheet one with the notes and the other side has the grid for the gallery walk)
After giving the the students a review of the simple machines
Have them go around the room and look at the pictures from the 30 slides
(you print them off the powerpoint. I print two per page and cut them in half)
Then students must identify if it is a simple or compound machine
Then they must name the simple machines on each slide.
If you allow the students to work in pairs they often have good discussions about the slides.
If you have the time you can review all the slides with the class, the answer is on the slide and will animate in after clicking.
I know that an argument can be made for more than the answers on the answer key which allowed for a good class discussion.
