Title: Around the World with Levers
Description: In this lesson, students will learn about the three classes of levers via a PowerPoint presentation and worksheet. They will then use their knowledge of levers to play a game. Students will answer questions at different stations correctly to move on the next station. The main goal is to go to every station, traveling all the way “around the world” to win the game. Students will also use small, everyday objects to model the different types of levers.
