Product Description

Get your wheels turning!

To move any object we must apply force.  There are only two types of forces: pushing and pulling.  Heavy objects that touch the surface are difficult to move because there is a lot of friction between the object and the surface.  To make objects easier to move we can use wheels.  Wheels are helpful be cause there is less friction between the surface and wheels  than the friction between the surface and the object.  Axles are an important part of wheels because the wheels are mounted on them.  

In the Wheels activity the students will:

  • Learn the meaning of wheel and axle
  • Discover the forces of pushing and pulling
  • Understand the concept of friction
  • Build a model with axles and wheels
  • Use the cart to investigate moving objects with and without wheels

 The materials in the "Wheels" activity allow each student to construct their own model cart with wheels and axles.  They will use the carts to push objects across the table.  Each student will also receive their own worksheets so that they draw the wheels on a number of different vehicles and machines.  

For the teacher, each Wheels Kit comes with a Teacher's Guide.  The Teacher's Guide provides instructions on making the carts.  The Guide also include background information and discussion points for the lesson.

The kits are designed so that an educator opens the box and can begin teaching.

The Classroom Kits are packaged so that each student receives their own materials to perform the activity's investigation. The lab materials are separated, for each student, to minimize preparation time in the classroom. All kits include the necessary materials to perform the activity. No outside materials (with the exception of water in some activities) are required. The kits even include common classroom materials if the activity requires them such as crayons, pencils, or tape.
