What a fun way to discover that simple machines are all around you. Once the students realize this, they will know them all in no time!
Before taking your children on this scavenger hunt, preplan your route to make sure that they will discover each of the simple machines. Make sure to go outside! Many of the simple machines can be found on a playground! Pause at different location to give them a chance to look around!
If you are a homeschooling mom, I suggest a walk around the neighborhood and/or a field trip to the park!
Simply copy one sheet per group, attach the sheet to a clipboard and give them a pencil. My class always had fun with this activity.
A home learning sheet has been attached so this activity can be expended into the home.
We here at What We Get Up To hope that your children have as much fun with this activity as we have.
