Wheels and Axles 1

Learners investigate how and why wheels are used in different types of machines. They work in teams trying to move a heavy box with and without dowels and discuss which way is easier to move the box. Next, they conduct an experiment with marbles to examine the role that ball bearings play in making machines run more smoothly.

Lesson Planet has helped me give some great extending activities that I hadn't thought of before. It has also helped me be able to deliver a quality lesson when life gets busy, when I'm forced to be on the fly and not as prepared as I'd like to be.
