    Simple Machines
    By Jennifer in OK

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Some of the things I do with this unit:

    Tug of War (pulleys)

    Milk Carton Cars (have kids save and more importantly rinse out milk cartons - cut them in half - decorate - get pipe cleaners and wooden wheels - have a race) - this demonstrates wheel and axle, inclined plane, wedge

    Have students make a list of simple machines in their house. If this is tested by state or district, they often have to know examples in everyday routines.
