Title: Break It Down!
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.
Standard(s): [S1] (3) 5: Identify the relationship of simple machines to compound machines.
