Simple Machine Science
Readers learn all about pulleys--the simple machines that help lift heavy objects. Pulleys are also used to change the direction of a pulling motion.

Vibrant photographs allow readers to see firsthand how these simple machines work, and a graphic organizer provides important facts in an eye-catching way. This book presents essential science concepts through creative methods, engaging readers.
