Simple Machines

Fourth graders investigate and explore the inner workings of objects that help us do work. They examine how the parts work together to make the object function. Using the internet, 4th graders discover the interaction of the parts of a device and draw conclusions about how simple machines work. They draw the object and label the parts of the device.

I have been told by seasoned educators not to "re-invent the wheel" when coming up with ideas for lessons. So true!! Lesson Planet has a wealth of sources and ideas from some of the greatest teaching minds that are out there...what a blessing to have a resource such as Lesson Planet, to turn to. I am even planning to contribute a lesson or two myself. My daughter is in a teacher education program and I have introduced her to the "Planet". We're spreading the news!
