Simple Machines Unit

There are two versions: one for quick printing and another that's EDITABLE so you can add your own questions, answers, and font.

This 5-page test was created based on the following standards shown below for Grades 2-5.

Students will understand the following key points:

  • A force is simply a push or pull (usually on an object).
  • Identify six simple machines: lever, wheel and axle, wedge, pulley, screw, inclined plane.
  • Simple machines are tools that help us do work. Simple machines make work easier for us to change the amount of force (pushing or pulling) needed to do certain kinds of work.
  • Simple machines are tools that help us do work but they don’t do it for us. Simple machines make work easier for us to change the amount of force (pushing or pulling) needed to do certain kinds of work.


How can forces be used to make objects move, change direction, or stop?
