Hands-on learning at it best! The K'NEX Education Intro to Simple Machines: Levers and Pulleys set is designed to introduce students to the scientific concepts associated with two types of Simple Machines — levers and pulleys. Students are provided with the opportunity to acquire skills using a hands-on, inquiry-based approach to information and concepts. Working cooperatively, students are encouraged to interact with each other as they build, investigate, discuss and evaluate scientific principles in action. The teacher's guide provides the information and resources needed to build students' understanding of scientific concepts and channel their inquiries into active and meaningful learning experiences. Extension activities that can be used to explore the concepts more deeply are also included. Set includes 178 K'NEX parts — enough to build eight fully functioning replicas of real-world machines, one at a time.
