Simple Machines to the Rescue

There are 6 books in this set.

Wheels, inclined planes, and wedges don't sound that amazing, until one of them gets you out of a jam. Need to brush your teeth? Cut an apple? Open a door? That's the utility of simple machines, which are all around us. We even have them in our bodies! And while they are simple, they make easy work of many tasks. Readers and report writers will discover just how important these deceptively simple machines can be!
