Simple Machines

Here is an inventive plan that should get your young scientists excited! In it, groups of pupils test out the work done by six different simple machines. The machines are: the wedge, the lever, the inclined plane, the pulley, the screw, and the wheel and axle. There is a method they use to determine the machine that does the best job of exchanging force for distance. Excellent!
