This book allows you to present scientific principles and simple mechanics through hands-on cooperative learning activities. Using inexpensive materials (e.g., tape, paper clips), students build simple machines-such as levers, pulleys, spring scales, gears, wheels and axles, windmills, and wedges-that demonstrate how things work. Activities have easy-to-locate materials lists, time requirements, and step-by-step directions (usually illustrated) on presentation. Ideas for bulletin boards, learning centers, and computer-assisted instruction are an added bonus.

From the Publisher

This book allows you to present scientific principles and simple mechanics through hands-on cooperative learning activities. Using inexpensive materials (e.g., tape, paper clips), students build simple machines-such as levers, pulleys, spring scales, gears, wheels and axles, windmills, and wedges-that demonstrate how things work.

Ideas for bulletin boards, learning centers, and computer-assisted instruction are an added bonus.

From the Jacket

Teach your students essential scientific principles and basic mechanics through hands-on, cooperative learning activities that are not only easy to teach, but also inexpensive and fun. Learn how to build a lever, pulley, spring scale, gear, wheel and axle, windmill, and wedge with such inexpensive materials as rubber bands, paper clips, and masking tape. As students experiment with these gadgets that slide, pivot, turn, rub, and work, they learn why and how machines operate the way they do. Illustrated step-by-step instructions, materials lists, reproducible activity and assessment sheets, and estimated time required for activities, make this a unique and practical resource.

Appropriate for ages: 8 - 13
