This is a great activity for your students at the end of the year. Kids love seeing and building Rube Goldberg machines. Here is a great way to get in some end of the year review and engage your students during this busy season! In this powerpoint, your students will examine the machine and identify the causes and their effects!
(There is also some great connections between ELA and Science.) The day after we did this in Reading, we went back and talked about forms of energy we saw in the contraption. But those are not specifically worked on in this Power Point FYI.)
