Kids use simple machines every day without realizing it. Teeth are wedges and so are knives, forks, and thumb tacks. Many toys such as slides, which are inclined planes, and seesaws, which are levers, are also simple machines. Two appealing kids and their comical cat introduce levers, wheels, pulleys, inclined planes, and more, amd explain how they work. This lively introduction to physics will get kids excited about how simple machines simplify our lives.

Simple Machines: Wheels, Levers, and Pulleys by David Adler (ages 5 to - multicultural characters

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.

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.

Karakuri: How to Make Mechanical Paper Models That Move is a highly rated book that brings creatures and scenes to life with paper gears, cranks, cams, and levers.

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.

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.
