Science - Design a Compound Machine
Designing a Compound Machine
In this unit, you have learned how forces affect the way that objects move, that there are six simple machines, and that simple machines can be combined to form compound machines. It is now your job to take what you have learned and create a compound machine!
I can show my understanding of simple and compound machines by creating and describing my own compound machine.
Criteria for Success:
•I have designed and built/drawn a compound machine that will make an everyday household task easier.
•I have accurately identified two or more simple machines.
•I have described why each simple machine would make the task easier.
•I have used scientific words from chapters 1-3 that explain my understanding.
•I have described why my compound machine would make the job easier.

Pictured above are my fantastic (yet at times troublesome) chocolate labs. Their names are Nash and Xiao Guai. Xiao Guai actually translates from Chinese to English, meaning "good boy." Nash is named after my personal hero, Steve Nash.
