    Hands on learning of Simple Machines

  • I used this for our homeschool Science Olympiad team (middle school) to introduce them to Simple Machines for the Mission Possible event. Kids had a great time -- even my 10th grader joined in on the fun!

  • I ordered this to supplement our homeschooling physics curriculum (middle school). My kids (boys ages 13 and 10) preferred not to follow the instructions to build the models in the book, but they used the pictures as ideas and then went ahead and built their own things. Once they got the hang of how the set could be put together they went back and worked from the diagrams. so I have to say I was very pleased with the set. I think the smaller pieces could be a bit sturdier, but all in all its a great set. I recommend additional pieces incase some get lost or incase your child is struck by inspiration and wants to build onto the kit projects.

      K'Nex - Intro To Simple Machines: Levers and Pulleys

      Discover how eight simple machines work as you construct a balance, wheelbarrow, scissors, a block and tackle, and more. You'll understand how all three classes of levers work and see firsthand how fixed, moveable, and combination pulley systems operate.

      This kit comes with 178 snap-together pieces and a project guide, all in a sturdy plastic storage case. Includes a CD containing the 39 page teachers' guide.

      Key science concepts that can be taught and learned with this kit include:

      • Identify all three classes of lever and test them to determine how they operate
      • Identify key parts of levers; effort arm, resistance arm and fulcrum
      • Identify different types of pulley systems and test them to determine how they operate
      • Identify key parts of pulley systems
      • Discuss how pulleys change the direction and/or amount of force applied to do work
