Build a Playground
Landmark 8 (Nature Art Weekly)
As a class, we were studying Simple Machines and Materials and Structures.
1) Students were to gather recycled materials from home and bring them in.
2) From these materials students were to create a school playground that included 3 simple machines.
3) In small groups, the students shared their creations and showed what simple machines were in their park. In addition, the students were to explain the materials they used, where they came from, and whether the material was natural or man-made. What force was used to move their simple machine?
4) As a follow-up with the remaining materials students worked through a recycling lesson.
