This is a packet that I use in my special education class to meet the requirements for Georgia Alternative Assessment (GAA). It takes the Georgia 4th grade Science standard S4P3 focusing on Simple Machines and makes it extremely accessible to all students.
There is a Powerpoint that can be used as an introduction or review. It covers all 6 simple machines, their uses, and has review questions at the end.
There are 5 activities that start simple and gain in complexity. They utilize pictures with little or no need for reading and writing.
ALL Activities are FULLY EDITABLE to meet you and your students' needs.
Task 1- Label the picture of each simple machine. Word bank is included. Can be made as a copy and paste.
Task 2- Multiple Choice with pictures. Choose the picture for the named simple machine. Just circle the picture or have students point to it. Only 1 choice and 1 distracter,
Task 3- Cut and paste simple machine sort.
Task 4- Matching task. match the machine to it's intended use.
Task 5 Chart- Use the chart to answer questions about each machines use. MEETS CHARACTERISTIC OF SCIENCE
There are answer keys with each one.You could also use the slides from the powerpoint as a an assessment task.
