Simple machines are all around us. We use simple machines all the time and probably don’t even realize it. There are six different types of simple machines. Can you name all six?
Grade 2 is using a resource called EdHeads to learn about simple and compound machines.
After completing the activities from EdHeads, see if you can answer any of our key concepts/guiding questions.
Form/Function: What is a simple machine and what are the different types?
Causation: How do simple machines reduce the amount of force needed to do work?
Connection: What ways do simple machines make work easier?
