(Teenager Teacher Training in Progress....)

I always use to wonder how moms did it all.....then I figured it out...get those "all knowing" teenagers to teach their siblings......

Why is it that the most "simplest" of science activities intrigues them?

 

 Here my oldest is teaching about a simple pulley. Our materials were 1 spool, one straw, one twelve inch string, 2 - eight inch strings (one for each paper cup), washers, and 2 paper cups.

This activity was from A Reason for Science one of my favorite resources because they send you almost everything you need to perform the activities ( I don't like the fact they went up in price significantly after I brought my curriculum, but it sure is nice to have almost all your materials )

For the experiment, stick the straw through the spool.

Make two loops on each end of the 12 inch string, and wrap it once or twice around the spool.

Then stick two holes under the rim of the paper cups at the top. One on each side of the paper cup. Use something big enough to make the hole with so that the string fits through and doesn't come untwined.

Stick the 8 inch string through both holes then take the ends and stick them through the one loop on the 12 inch string. Do the same with the other paper cup.

Then use your pulley to raise and lower using the washers to show how the pressure changes. The pulley should look like this.

 (Of course we have all these materials now)

 

And yes that is my youngest guy who has now moved to sit on the table so he can do the activity better...

 

 

 

 I'm telling you girls, put that "teenager to work".
