Simple Machines Unit Lesson 10:
What is a wheel and axle? How does it help us do work better and faster? How does a wheel and axle work on a car? Does it help us do work? How?
Use cardboard boxes to cut out different size circles for wheels. Have students pick the size of wheels for their cars in their group. I would do 5 groups of 4 or 5 children in the group. Have students choose what part of the car they would like to make. Such as the body, interior, etc.
