What do science and dance have in common? Simple machines, work, and force! First, children discuss machines, wheels, inclined planes, and wedges. They create inclined planes with their bodies and make up dances about wheels and wedges. They use interpretive dance to describe the motion of machines such as, tilt, lean, spin, and turn. This is a really wonderful lesson that incorporates movement, music, science, and vocabulary development.
