What happens when you combine two or more simple machines? Read and find out!With colorful illustrations and engaging text, Simple Machines will delight young readers who love figuring out how things work. Featuring rich vocabulary bolded throughout the text, this book also includes a glossary and a find out more section with a lever experiment and web research prompts. Both the text and the artwork were vetted for accuracy by Dr. Babatunde A. Ogunnaike, dean of the College of Engineering at the University of Delaware.This is a Level 2 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science title, which means the book explores more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) standards.
