Why not give them the materials to build their own mechanisms using simple machines and let them learn for themselves!
That's the guiding force behind the LEGO Education Simple and Motorized Mechanisms Base Set.
An updated form of the Machines and Mechanisms Set, this 390+ element basic set is a perfect way for students to build and explore machines and mechanisms of various sizes and purposes. The set allows learners to investigate machine make-up, study mechanism gearing, and include movement to their builds.
Aimed for upper elementary and middle school classrooms, the new Simple and Motorized Mechanisms Set comes with full-color buidling insruction booklets for 10 principal models and 18 main models. A sturdy storage bin and sorting tray houses the set and its contents.
A Simple and Motorized Mechanisms Activity Pack is available for beginner classes, with an Advancing with Simple and Motorized Mechanisms Activity Pack is perfect for older students who understand the basics and require more challenging activities.
Both packs include a three-ring binder with 20+ teacher lessons, set extension activities, problem-solving activities. A CD-ROM is also included with teacher's notes, student worksheets, and a glossary.
