Plane Pretenders

Pupils examine simple machines evaluating a screw as an inclined plane. In this simple machines lesson, students use nuts and bolts and a microscopic vantage point to discover how to find an inclined plane. Pupils measure the distances between threads of a nut or a bolt. Students calculate for threads per millimeter on the bolt.

I am a brand new teacher and have felt extremely overwhelmed at times coming up with great activities for my students. Lesson Planet has been a life saver and helped me get through the first few months with a little less stress!
