After watching several videos which give excellent examples of Rube Goldberg inventions and simple machines, students can interact with the Smartboard to design their own machine.
In this activity, I've provided:
- YouTube videos
- Steps in the design process
- Graphics of simple machines and other items
- Design area
- PDF that contains component ideas for a design, design area and template for writing steps in completing the task.
I hope you enjoy this activity. The students are always so amazed when they see how Rube Goldberg can take a simple task and make it so creative and complicated to complete.
