Many years ago I taught middle school science and I enjoyed the “simple machines” lesson because in class they would make a Rube Goldberg machine, using all the simple machines they’d learned about in practice. I still have boxes of blocks, balls, wedges, and odds and ends to get rid of. Nick Park had some great examples of Rube Goldberg creations in Wallace and Grommet animations.
This video is amazing, simple machines at their finest, beautiful music, and so incredibly put together. Enjoy on this Fabulous Friday!
