          Comments about Simple Machines Set:

          I was so excited to be given the opportunity to review Simple Machines from Learning Resources! This really cool product has all the gears, widgets, and connectors (53 pieces in total!) to create 5 simple machines. How fun! I know when I taught third grade, we were required to discuss simple machines, and it was really hard to get the point across just from reading about them in the textbook. I wish I had had this product to complement my unit for sure!

          Comments about Simple Machines Set:

          I have used this product in my classroom for the past two week and I absolutely love it. The only issue that I have is that the plastic bolts are very easily broken. Not a huge deal because I will just go to the hardware store to pick up some metal bolts, but I feel that these need to be a bit stronger. Thank You!
