Science - Gr. 4.B - Wheels and levers

Children's literature connecting to Alberta Education science curriculum. Overview from Alberta Education:Students learn about basic components of simple machines: how they are assembled, how they operate, how they are used. Students explore different techniques that can be used to transfer motion from one component to another, using simple connectors and various levers, gears, pulleys and band driven systems...

Simple mechanisms, such as gears, cranks, cams, and levers, used to bring to life these amazing moving paper models. Included are pull-out pages for you to use to construct your own moving models. These models serve as the basis for designing your own karakuri or may just be admired on their own. Detailed explanations, accompanied by diagrams, explain the physics behind how karakuri move and operate, so you really learn about the properties of the different types of gears and cams.

Easy DIY craft tutorial ideas for free printable paper toys. Paper toys are fun to make and fun to play with. Great for kids and adults.

While building a soapbox racing car, a pair of friends provide an easy-to-understand lesson in how simple machines areall around us, making our work more efficient.

“Each simple machine is a device than enables a person to make work more convenient. The lever, the wheel and axle, the inclined plane, and the pulley are the basic simple machines.

How do the Imagineers make elephants fly? Actually, it's simple machines, that is! Here, the Imagineers give a new look at how levers and pulleys were utilized to create attractions such as Dumbo the Flying Elephant and Soarin' Over California. See how levers and pulleys make work easier by either multiplying or redirecting the effort we put into them. Identify the two forces involved in using a machine and learn to calculate mechanical advantage, given effort and resistance.

One day, a spring fell from the desk of Richard James, an engineer and a dreamer. Its coils took a walk…and so did Richard’s imagination. He knew right away that he had stumbled onto something marvelous.  With the help of his wife, Betty, Richard took this ordinary spring and turned it into a plaything. But it wasn’t just any old trinket—it was a Slinky, and it would become one of the most popular toys in American history.

The Marvelous Thing That Came from a Spring by Gilbert Ford - With magnificent dioramic illustrations, Gilbert Ford captures the joy, creativity, and.

Introduces six simple machines, describing how they work in more complex machinery and how they are used every day.

The kids' book of simple machines: Cool projects & activities that make science fun! by Kelly Doudna.

This book discusses physics (motion, forces on objects, magnets), simple and complex machines, and the interaction of forces, as well as how humans use physics to build, innovate, and explore, using charts, maps and illustrations.
