Simple Machines Make Things Go
Simple Machines Make Things Go supports a study of the structures and mechanism strand in the Science curriculum. It presents interesting approaches for students to use in applying concepts, and for recording the results of their explorations and investigations during the study. For example, students design, construct, and test a vehicle, recording relevant observations in
writing, graphs, and in oral presentations. This resource includes five booklets in which students record the activities they complete. Teachers may choose to use all or some of the booklets or to modify them to suit the needs of their students and the approach they are taking with the curriculum.
