This notebook document was designed to help students review the six types of simple machines (wheel and axle, pulley, wedge, inclined plane, lever, and screw). It at also reviews the terms force and work.
There are some slides that students can match the definition of each simple machine. Students sort pictures of everyday objects into their simple machine category. They will also do a sort comparing two or more simple machines.
At the end there is a link to a free interactive website in which the students can find simple machines in different parts of a house.
Have fun exploring simple machines!
