Gears: A Simple Machine

Fifth graders put one axle in each of four gears finding or making a mark on each gear. They label one gear as the driver, and one as the follower and put the two gears on the baseboard with the marked teeth touching and then turn the driver one complete time around clockwise watching the follower and recording how many times the follower turns and in what direction.
