Simple Machines

Story by Mrs. Susan LaPalme, Sixth Grade Teacher

Recently, the fifth grade class was assigned a Simple Machines Project where they were to create a compound machine by using two or more simple machines to design an invention that would make people’s lives easier in some way.

Some of the creations were a doorstop called “The Frogger”, a “Food Chooser”, “Cupsnack Catapult” and “Go Go Glamour” just to name a few.  Amazing ideas and maybe some patents in these young inventors’ futures!
