#### Simple Machines IV - Levers

The lever is an everyday simple machine. Youngsters learn the principles of levers and explore their many uses. Groups of pupils perform a simple lab where they lift objects with a fulcrum while placing the load in a variety of...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Simple Machines

Here is an inventive plan that should get your young scientists excited! In it, groups of pupils test out the work done by six different simple machines. The machines are: the wedge, the lever, the inclined plane, the pulley, the screw,...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Simple Machines III - Pulleys

The principles behind pulleys, levers, and simple machines are the focus of a science lesson. In it, learners take part in a whole-class activity. There are two groups of pupils who each must lift objects with fixed pulleys and multiple...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Levers and Pulleys

Seventeen pages of material leave you well-prepared to carry out this lesson on levers and pulleys. Photos and diagrams make the instructions clear; resource links provide additional information. The missing aspects of this teacher's...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Ropes and Pulleys in Static Equilibrium

For this ropes and pulleys in static equilibrium worksheet, students are given 11 diagrams of masses attached to pulleys and ropes. The pulleys are mass less and frictionless and students determine the tension in each labeled rope.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Pulleys

In this simple machines instructional activity, students learn about pulleys. They then answer the 11 questions on the page. The answers are on the last page of the packet.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Simple Machines: Pulleys

Young scholars observe and analyze how pulleys work and how a double pulley can make work easier. In small groups they use a fixed pulley system and a double pulley system and draw a picture of how their pulley system functions. ...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### A Simple Block and Tackle Pulley Demonstration

Students investigate the scientific concept of mechanical advantage. They construct their own system with the use of a simple broomstick. Then the demonstration is done to show how the mechanical advantage is used to move a load.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Pulleys and Gears

Students analyze an engineering problem. They contrast paper and pencil mastery of concepts with hands-on mastery. They present their design and rationale behind it, whether it works or not.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Farming in the 1930's

Students research and conduct experiments with several types of simple machines. They examine levers, pulleys, inclined planes, wheels, axles, wedges and screws and then consider the physics behind "Green Eggs and Ham".

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Pulleys

Students determine how to tell the difference between a simple system and a complex pulley system. Using pulleys, students build simple pulley systems to demonstrate the mechanical advantages of pulleys.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Stop Pulling My Bot Around!

Students investigate the relationship between work and mechanical advantage. In this physics lesson plan, students calculate the work and efficiency of pulleys. They identify the different types of pulleys.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Robotic Muscles

Learners investigate how adding more pulleys affect the pulling power. For this physics lesson, students explain how pulleys work. They compare the work done by robots with and without pulleys.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Machinery In Society

Students explore technology by completing a worksheet in class. In this common machinery lesson, students define the different designs that make simple machines work such as wheels, pulleys and gears. Students utilize verbs to describe...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Pulleys 1

In this simple machines scientific investigation worksheet, students follow the provided procedures to examine how pulleys work and then respond to 2 short answer questions.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Simple Machines-Pulleys

Third graders understand what a pulley is and how it works. In this simple machines, pulley lesson students experiment with broom sticks creating a pulley. Students observe how the pulley moves in its different trials.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Simply Machines

In this machines worksheet, students draw a "Rube Goldberg" style machine which uses 3 different types of simple machines to complete one task.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Pull(ey)ing The Science Out (Or Pulleys)

Students investigate how the number of pulleys affect the difficulty or ease of pulling an object up. They watch a demonstration that shows the work done by one pulley and two pulleys. After watching the demonstration, the students break...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Simple Machines III - Pulleys

Fourth graders are introduced to a spring scale to show that the forces on both sides of the pulley are the same. They break into groups to lift objects with fixed pulleys and with multiple looped pulleys and then measure the force...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER
