Simple Machines Hunt- Rube Goldberg Cartoons!

Rube Goldberg was a cartoonist, an inventor, and the only person ever to be listed in Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary as an adjective! Of the nearly 50,000 cartoons he drew in his lifetime, Rube is best known for the zany contraptions of Professor Butts. These inventions, also known as Rube Goldberg Machines, solved a simple task in the most overcomplicated and hilarious way possible. Steps: 1. Check out the two Rube Goldberg Cartoons on the slides. 2. Use the drawing tool to circle as many simple machines as you can! 3. Use the label to label each simple machine you circled on the table. Dont forget to click the check when you are finished! How many can you find?
