Using classroom models allows you to easily explain the scientific principles of simple machines—and involve your students in the demonstrations so that they quickly master the concepts. Built of durable hardwood, these models will provide years of use in your classroom. Students can’t resist learning!

Use this wooden demonstration model to illustrate the concept that the further from the pivot point a force is applied, the greater its effect. This basic principle is behind the operation of the lever and many other basic devices. This model allows students the chance to freely experiment with this idea, by moving masses back and forth and looking for the point of balance. As students experiment, they will learn a basic concept of the laws of physics.
