Simple Machines - Music Lesson

Have you ever heard of a Rube Goldberg Machine? It is a complex contraption designed to achieve a simple task. In Ok Go's video "This Too Shall Pass", you will see many simple machines used in the machine coordinated exactly in time to the music. Use the scavenger hunt worksheet attached to find these machines and record it. Lever. Wheel and axle. Pulley. Inclined plane. Wedge. Screw. Extension Activity: Rank the machines in the video (Top 3) in order of something that interests you or might like to make. Make a simple machine and see if you can make it move on the beat of the music and take a video for me.
