Title: Break It Down!
Description: In this Science NetLinks lesson, students explore the everyday implications of system failure and are challenged to identify the causes. There are two prerequisite lessons for this lesson: Systems 1: Simple Machines and Systems 2: Systems, Up, Up and Away! In the first lesson, students observe the interaction of parts and establish a framework for understanding system. In the second lesson, students explore how changing parts or amounts of parts can impact the properties of a system. This lesson asks students to further their experience by exploring the everyday impacts of system failure and challenges them to identify the causes of failure.
