- Catapults / Simple Machines and Mechanics – Simple machines are devices we use to make work easier. These machines include door knobs, can openers, clothespins, pencil sharpeners and wheelbarrows. It is difficult to go through a day without using many simple machines. In this unit the student will build their own simple machine. They will theorize about how energy is transferred to objects that are propelled through the air. As they consider the properties of the various balls used in the unit, they will theorize which will travel the farthest.
