Description:

This lesson plan is the first of a two-part series for grades 3-5 on the topic of simple machines. It is designed to develop student understanding of the interactive nature of parts in a system. Students work cooperatively to explore a variety of simple machines and discover how they are broken down into interactive parts. Three related activities are accessed online, and would extend the lesson to 3 days. A shorter lesson can be done without the need for computer access. Included is a printable student activity sheet. This is part of a larger collection of lessons, all of which are aligned to AAAS Benchmarks for Science Literacy.
