Preschool Steam learned about 4 different simple machines today- wedges, inclined planes/ramps, screws, and levers. Many different activities allowed the students to experience these tools first hand. They divided play dough with wedges, pushed heavy baskets up ramps, rolled an egg down a ramp, used screws to create a 3-D piece of art, balanced quarters on a lever and shot pompoms across the room with catapults. It was a very busy day learning about simple machines! Pictures are below! Enjoy!
