Storyboard Text

  • Hey sister! Wanna know about the six simple machine 
  • Hey brother! Well I know some of them, but why don't  you tell me so I know if you are right. By the way that is a screw, the lightbulb you are holding
  • Well yes you are right! There is a screw inside of this light bulb.  A screw is a spiral cylinder with threads, which is called inclined plane. 
  • Another thing about the screw is less distance between the threads more, the work easier. Tell me more.
  • Oh just like the well back there! Why is there well back there?
  • So another simple machine would be a pulley. A pulley is a wheel with a grooved rim around which a cord passes. It has a wire or a rope on it.
  • I don't know about that but I do know an another example of a simple machine that is a wedge. A wedge is to incline planes put together.
  • Hmmmm. Like the one dad uses as a doorstop ?
  • Now you're getting it! Now, another example of a simple machine is a wheel and axle. This has a wheel attached to an axle, axle moves faster making work easier.
  • So an example of that would be a doorknob?
  • Yup! Good job sis!
  • Exactly! Another example of a simple machine would be a lever. A lever is a rigid bar resting on a pivot. Just like the diving board of the pool we are now randomly in. This would be a second class lever. ELF
  • Ok. So the last simple machine would be an inclined plane, right? A sloping ramp up which heavy loads can be raised by ropes or chains
