This PDF can be used to make a set of three/four part cards that can be used to teach students about the ways simple machines were used in the Middle Ages. Each term has a control card (word and picture), a word card, a picture card, and an information card. Topics included are: Trebuchet, Pulley, Wine Press (screw), winch, inclined plane, siege tower (wheel and axle), drawbridge (lever), wedge. These cards provide an easy way to integrate the subjects science and history.
Cards should be printed onto card stock and laminated prior to classroom use.
