PULLEY
Make a simple pulley using a wheel and axle from household goods


MATERIALS

1 yarn ball
1 empty ribbon spool
1 plastic cup
Tape
Scissors
Pencils or wood for the axle

DIFFICULTY: 2 dots

TIME: 30 mins

SCIENCE FUN FACTS: Learn about a simple machine like a pulley. How it can make things easier to move from one place to another. Understand how wheel and axle can be used to make lifting easy and effective.



INSTRUCTIONS:

STEP 1:  Make the pulley basket: Take the plastic cup and make 3 holes like a triangle.

STEP 2:  Feed some yarn through the holes and tie, giving the cup a short handle.

STEP 3:  Construct the pulley: Tie the yarn to the basket. The length of the yarn can be 10 feet or more, depending on how long you want the rope to be.

STEP 4:  Run the yarn over the spool.

STEP 5:  Insert the pencil through the spool hole and tape both the ends to the staircase railing bars. This should be done in such a way that the basket dangles from the stairs and can be easily pulled up or down. Your pulley is ready! Have fun lifting things all the way to the top of the stairs!


The pulley with the basket is ready! Have fun pulling and moving things from one place to the other.


My Review 
Firstly thanks to the publisher for a review copy of this book

This is a fun book of experiments for children from six to ten. I remember a book with some experiments when I was little and loved it and this book should have the same response with children today. It has lovely pictures which help to show exactly how to carry out the experiments. As I mention there are simple experiments a six year old could do and then harder ones for the ten year olds. This book would be a great book for days when you need something to keep the children entertained like days where it's either to hot or cold to be outside. It will also keep the children of their ipads and teach them something at the same time.
