Wheel and Axle
-->Printable Visual Dictionary Pages for each term
-->10 Quick Lessons (with no prep or photocopying needed!) – these are in addition to the 5 experiments and are designed to be done quickly and efficiently and help cement student learning.
-->10 Simple Machines Matching Cards (term, definition, examples, pictures)
Full colour posters are perfect for hanging in your classroom and Black and White Posters for wonderful learning tools for students to colour and write about each simple machine! You can pull them out one at a time when you introduce them to your students!
This simple machines unit is very hands on and this packet helps you and your students keep the learning organized. Each experiment has a printable experiment page and I’ve included a blank version if you want students to fill it in on their own too. This unit focuses on critical thinking, creating, building, problem solving and higher level processes. The printables ensure that you have some written work to go along with all those experiments!
