Simple Machines

In science, we are learning about force and motion and with that comes simple machines.  I learned so much when creating my lesson for simple machines.  Did you know that a broom is a simple machine?  It's a lever!  Ah the wonders of 5th grade... Feel free to use this if you ever have the inkling to do a little simple machines hunt at home yourself.

  1. Love this, I am taking my kiddos to the Science Museum in OKC this year and the playground there is based on simple machines, this will be great for introducing the concept to them!
