Six Simple Machine Rap
Teaching the Six Simple Machines
Jack Hartmann, M.A.


This song is available on Jack Hartmann's Cool Beats That Teach.

(Chorus)
Six simple machine rap
You can do it just like that
Be cool and move as you do
The six simple machine rap

One – The Lever
It moves big things up and down
A stiff bar and a fulcrum work together
Like a see saw at a children’s playground

Two – The Wheel and Axle
It helps you carry and move big loads
The wheel turns round the axle at the center
And goes down driveways, tracks and roads

Three – The Pulley
It lifts or lowers heavy stuff
A grooved wheel and a rope really do it
They make hard work –
Not so tough

Repeat Chorus

Four - The Inclined Plane
It moves heavy things higher and lower
Like a ramp or slanted surface on the ground
It makes things easier – just slower

Five - The Wedge
It splits things up or holds things back
You push, hit or place it – it works
It’s two inclined planes back to back
That’s a fact

Six - The Screw
It holds things in place or lifts them up
Turn right it goes down, left it goes up
It’s an inclined plane around a nail –
Pretty much

Repeat Chorus
