I created this journal to go along with our simple machines unit in which students will be using a very simple website to research and record information, examples, and illustrations of each simple machine.
The six simple machines included are the lever, inclined plane, wheel and axle, screw, wedge, and pulley. The journal also includes a 10 question quiz and matching activity.
The website students will be using to gather their info is: http://atlantis.coe.uh.edu/archive/science/science_lessons/scienceles1/finalhome.htm
To assemble the booklet:
Each worksheet, when printed, has 2 half pages on it so that when copied and folded, the journal is a series of half sheets. It is meant to be copied back to back as follows:
Pgs. 16, 1 back to back with 2, 15
Pgs. 14, 3 back to back with 4, 13
Pgs. 12, 5 back to back with 6, 11
Pgs. 10, 7 back to back with 8, 9
