Congratulations on a job well done! Ms. Ima Fake is eager

to look at all the playground designs and I’m sure all the
children at Notfo Real School are very grateful.
Why let the fun and learning stop here? Put your new
found knowledge of simple machines to use some more.
Perhaps you can design a new amusement park ride that
makes use of simple machines. Maybe you can think of a
problem that could be solved with a simple machine, such
as an invention that helps to get you out of bed in the
morning. These would also be great topics to incorporate
into your writing during Writers Workshop.
Just don’t let your discovery of simple machines end here.
Look all around you. I think you’ll be amazed to discover
how often you use simple machines.
