Week 4 – Blog Post

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

  1. a)  purpose and function of simple machines;
  2. b)  types of simple machines;
  3. c)  compound machines; and
  4. d)  examples of simple and compound machines found in the school, home, and work environments.
