Simple Machines

Yesterday I posted about our awesome science curriculum and today I’m sharing pictures from another science experiment.  We’ve been learning about simple machines.  Hammers are considered simple machines because they can be used as a lever.

We learned that the nail was called the load, the place the hammer rested was the fulcrum, and the hand pushing down was the force.

      Neat. I just need to remember that the boys really do love to “DO” science. I’ve scheduled Fridays as our experiment days. Hopefully that’ll keep me motivated.
