Simple Machine Unit Study with FREE Printables

Simple Machines

I wanted to make more cute graphics for the blog BUT I am starting to run out of space.... YILES!!! Looks like I am going to have to upgrade sometime soon. So much for a free blog! ;) So until then I might just reuse the ones I made for the pirate unit! LOL

I put together some notebooking pages for this unit. I am getting better at working Google Drive. ;)

************FREE NOTEBOOKING PAGES***************


When I put a unit together, I try to include resources for a variety of ages. My kids are 19 (no longer homeschooled), 17, 16, 9 and 6 so I teach a variety of ages! LOL

Most of the books can be found at your local library or on Amazon.

I know that I have been posting a lot of homeschooling stuff lately and not so much sewing BUT we are gearing up for the new school year and that is about all my brain can handle right now! In a short time I should be more prepared and should be able to focus more time on sewing tutorials! ;)
