Title – Song about Simple Machines
By – Lisa Keeter
Primary Subject – Science
Secondary Subjects – Music
Grade Level – 3rd grade
This is a song that my students and I made up as our review of Simple Machines- sung to the tune of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”

Work, work, I love work…
Making something move.
Simple Machines can help us work…
Get into the groove.

1. Down, down, pulling down…
works with gravity.
Pull down on the rope, the flag goes up…
it’s called a PULLEY!

2. SCREWS, screws, screws help us
in getting our work done,
an inclined plane around a bar,
climbing them is fun.

3. A WEDGE is good to use,
holds open a door.
Makes an angle that’s acute,
one side on the floor!

4. An AXLE turns a WHEEL,
sharpens pencils for me.
Bicycle, car, and train tires,
help us move quickly!

5. A LEVER is lots of fun,
just like a see- saw.
LEVERS can move up and down,
careful now, don’t fall!
