Simple MachinesTHE PROJECT

Each student will research 2 simple machines You will be placed in groups and you will each be responsible for answering a number of research points about your particular simple machine. You will then work together to create a Prezi containing your research findings. You should have enough facts on your research notes page to complete a full Prezi slide for each topic.



Day 1:
  • You and your partner will pick the simple machines you will research.
  • You will be introduced to the resources you will use to do you research.
  • You can begin to search!
Day 2: Research - use your research notes sheet and answer the questions on it.
Finish your research today and begin your final project (a Prezi).
Day 3: Work on final project (Prezi). CLICK HERE FOR PREZI
