Simple Machines: Poster Activity

Let your students share what they have learned about simple machines by using this 8.5 x 11 ecosystems poster.

This ONE PAGE poster will look great hanging outside your classroom, and parents will enjoy reading them when they are sent home.

The simple machines poster activity has plenty of places for students to add their own creative touches with color as they color the black lined simple machine themed pictures, as well as when they sketch an example of each one.

You could also use as a literacy center activity!

NOTE: I have lots of other posters, so don't forget to check them out.

The sections for the students to fill out are:

*Choose an everyday gadget you use. What simple machine does it use, and how does it make life easier for you?

*What is a simple machine, and how do they make work easier?

*What does the term, "work smarter, not harder" mean in regard to simple machines.

*What is a force, and now does it make an object move, change direction, or stop?

*Name the simple machines and sketch a small picture in the boxes.

My posters look so nice on a bulletin board or hanging outside the classroom. I get so many compliments on them.
