The students and teacher will go on a ‘movement’ hunt in their neighbourhood, and around their class and school during which they will record all the different things that move. Discussion will revolve around what types of things move, how they move, and why people use them for movement. An investigation of the six simple machines can result from this shared experience. After gaining knowledge of the different simple machines, students will be asked to design and build a structure, such as a vehicle, using at least two simple machines that will then be used in a variety of experiments with inclined planes.
