Design project with Simple Machines!
Ollie and I made 6 simple machines which are a wedge, lever, inclined plane, pulley, wheel and axle and a screw.
let me show you what they do lets start with a wedge
A wedge means something that is used to pull apart things.
and then we also made a lever. but with a lever it was really hard to find an object with a lever in it, but then we thought of a stapler which looks like this.
A lever means a common thing that can be used to reduce the effort that is needed to get a job done.
A screw is a simple machine used to hold objects together.
An axle is a central shaft for rotating wheel or gear.
A pulley is a kind of lever that uses a rope to lift and object.
You can use an Inclined Plane to help move an object to a higher or lower point (it’s looks the exact same as a wedge).
and so on. because that me and Ollie had finished our simple machines we had to make a machine with a simple machine in it. So we decided that we both loved the pulley so we made a weight compare which looked like this (IT WAS SO HARD!!!).
pretty big right.
