Investigating Simple Machines Kit

Comprehensive Classroom Activities and Lessons All In One Convenient Package

  • Includes apparatus and activities
  • Materials for 30 students
  • Work in groups
Address all the facets of physical science with Investigating Physical Science Kits. These innovative packages include apparatus and activities to fully explore a key physical science topic with an entire class of 30 students. Set up multiple stations, each with its own apparatus and accompanying experiment. Students travel from station to station in groups, applying the knowledge learned at previous stations to their following activities. Each of the experiments addresses a different aspect of the same physical science concept, so upon completion students have concrete, hands-on experience and complete understanding. A detailed activity guide provides instructions for each station experiment, and an included quick-start guide simplifies initial setup. And for your convenience, a durable storage system keeps all the apparatus, guides, and materials organized for repeat use. The stackable tote can be stored compactly with all other Investigating Physical Science Kits for a complete curriculum of activities.

Major apparatus and simple instructions are included in this comprehensive study of simple machines. Fun, hands-on activities are easy to execute with the included pulleys, gears, scales, and more. Students learn the efficiency of simple machines first-hand and then determine the mechanical advantage of each type of machine to determine which yield the best benefits. Explore the inclined plane; pulleys; gears; wheel and axle; screws; wedge; and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd class levers. Students move from station to station working with all the included apparatus — inclined plane, lever set, pulley set, spring scales, gear set, protractor, wheel and axle set, two bolts, two wedges with clay, mass set, and more. An instructional teacher and student guide are also included. Developed by the Science Kit product development team. Grades 7–12.

Ordering information: Support stands and other laboratory equipment are required, but not included.
