    3rd Grade Engineering Unit - Simple Machines

    Machines make work easier—as students learn when they read about a visit to a potato-chip factory in the storybook Aisha Makes Work Easier. This unit guides students to think like industrial engineers as they explore the surprising variety of simple machines people use every day. Students also explore the pros and cons of assembly lines compared to making things by hand, then measure the force it takes to complete a task with and without a simple machine to help. Finally, they put their data to the test, combining a series of simple machines to create an assembly-line subsystem for a model potato chip factory.
