Simple machines are so much a part of everyday life that we don't notice their brilliance! Using a simple machine as an extension of our own abilities or force can make us stronger, faster and more efficient than we can be using our bodies alone. Once you understand the basics of simple machines you begin to see they are everywhere!
In this book we identify clear examples of how children use simple machines everyday. Through open-ended questions we look at how simple machines can solve problems and begin to explore the basics of the physics that make simple machines so successful.
Our large format big book makes learning about simple machines in the classroom a collaborative and exploratory experience, with terminology and layout suitable for even the youngest readers. Free downloadable teachers' notes with curriculum links provide scaffolding and help teachers to design a learning experience.
