Simple Machines III - Pulleys

The principles behind pulleys, levers, and simple machines are the focus of a science lesson plan. In it, learners take part in a whole-class activity. There are two groups of pupils who each must lift objects with fixed pulleys and multiple loop pulleys. They keep track of the force necessary to lift each object. This effective task should lead to a good understanding of how simple machines make our lives easier!

As a first year teacher, Lesson Planet is a precious lifeline! I am able to gather ideas and build on the ideas of veteran teachers. Lesson Planet is a huge time saver, especially for a first year teacher who is trying very diligently not to become overwhelmed!
