    Just how simple are simple machines?

    Our resource makes these machines simple to teach and easy to learn. Understand that work is when a thing moves in the direction that a force is acting on it. Conduct an experiment with first-class levers to study distance and force. Explain how a wheel and axle can be used as a lever. Identify the three different kinds of pulleys. Find the resistance force when walking up an inclined plane. Figure out the direction of the effort force when using a wedge to split a log. Explain how a screw is a kind of inclined plane. Visit a hardware store to find as many simple and complex machines as possible. Aligned to the Next Generation State Standards and written to Bloom's Taxonomy and STEAM initiatives, additional hands-on experiments, crossword, word search, comprehension quiz and answer key are also included.

    My students loved this bundle. It was extremely easy to use during distance learning. It was great to have a low prep assignment during distance learning.

    Wonderful resource and great keys!


    Very clear lessons on simple machines. I loved this unit.


    I absolutely love to rely on Classroom Complete Press reading passage and questions sets for differentiation for my science students who struggle with content. Many reading passage sets are just "fluff" - not CCP sets - they are well-written, with strong attention to vocabulary and higher-order thinking on each concept. Great resource.


    Used in a HS SpEd classroom where students are reading on a 2nd-4th grade reading level. This lesson was so much better than the textbook the students have been struggling with! Stayed engaged, weren't overwhelmed by the reading, and really enjoyed the lesson. Thank you!
