Song 8 - Pulleys in comics

Grades 2-3 children explored the force needed to lift masses with single and double pulleys. We also read the story The Strongest Piggy, who uses a double pulley to win a contest of strength. Then children used Bitstrips.com to create comic strips based on what they learned.

The stone was too heavy
For Bob and me to lift alone
Let’s use a pulley
What’s that?
A simple machine

You lift by pulling
It gives us a Mechanical Advantage
I used a pulley to win a contest of strength

A giant head lost its balance
A pulley picked him up

Science in my locker
Science in a pulley
Science makes me smart
