Forces and Motion

by Lisa Greathouse

Series: Science Readers

Students won’t have to disassemble their favorite toys to discover what makes them work. This reader explores electric, magnetic, and motion-powered toys from design to function. It introduces students to the six simple machines and explains how they use force and motion to do work. Not every toy is a technological marvel. Students read about time-honored favorites including the rocking horse, Slinky, and rattles.
