For my activity I would teach students different simple machines, their function and purpose. I would use Tinkercad software so students can create their own simple machines. First, during creation I will recreate the simple machines and make it available on Tinkercad for students to modify. In the iteration step I will explain to the students the purposes and functions of a list of simple machines. During sharing, the student will express their motivation behind the creation of their simple machine. Next, the autonomy stage they have the chance to create a simple machine of their own that is practical and creative.
3.2 The student will investigate and understand simple machines and their uses. Key concepts include
- a) purpose and function of simple machines;
- b) types of simple machines;
- c) compound machines; and
- d) examples of simple and compound machines found in the school, home, and work environments.
