It combines the Structures Classroom Set with the Pulleys & Cranks and the Pulleys & Cranks Module in one set. Once students have created their simple moving machines they can explore how to make things that will haul, lift, slide and move up and down, as part of STEM and STEAM learning.
Lesson Plans for Gears coming Spring 2020!
GREAT FOR 6-8 STUDENTS, GRADES PREK-6
Students can build zip lines that stretch more than 4 feet in length! Includes pulleys, axles, hubs, hook, cranks, and string. The budding engineers in your classes will have fun building and cranking contraptions that haul, lift, slide and move up and down. Gears and chains (like the ones in bicycles) are simple machines. When students learn to design and build with gears they gain a hands-on understanding of the principles of motion.
Each Brackitz Wheels & Axles Set comes with 25 downloadable lesson plans and activities for PreK-6 written by expert educators. Lesson plans include clear learning objectives, vocabulary, literature references and standards alignments (NGSS, ECERS-R).
