Levers and Wedges in the Human Body

Young biologists identify parts of the body that serve as wedges (teeth and fingernails), and as levers (jaw, arms, and legs). The hands-on activities described here should be exciting for learners to perform, and should also lead to a greater understanding of how our bodies really are examples of simple machines in many ways. This resource has some of the better worksheets I've seen embedded in a lesson.

Lesson planning can be so time consuming. Now I can spend some time with my kids. Quality lessons when you've got that "not so creative" feeling.
